Definitions for "COD"
(Chemical Oxygen Demand) Chemical oxygen-consuming substances. A measure of the amount of oxygen required for the total chemical breakdown of organic substances in water.
Chemical Oxygen Demand. A measure of the amount of organic matter requiring oxygen for oxidation similar to BOD. COD is more widely used as it is a simpler procedure and includes the effects of non-biodegradable organic matter which can account for up to half the material discharged.
Chemical Oxygen Demand. The amount of oxygen required for the oxidation of organic or inorganic matter by a strong oxidizing agent under acidic conditions.

Coalition on Donation. The Coalition on Donation is a national not-for-profit alliance of local affiliates and corporate partners that have joined forces to inspire all people to Donate Life through organ, eye and tissue donation. At the core of the organization's education efforts are the ongoing qualitative and quantitative research of public attitudes about organ and tissue donation and the development and dissemination of effective, motivating public service campaigns. Distributed at the national and community level, these multi-media compaigns effectively communicate two core messages: "Transplants give people their life back," and "Here is how you can help." Founded by the transplant community in 1992, the Coalition publishes brochures, program kits and other materials; provides technical assistance, training, information and referral services; and coordinates the National Campaign for Organ and Tissue Doation. it is comprised of national organizational members and local coalitions across the U.S.

Catastrophic Optical Damage. Catastrophic optical damage occurs when the semiconductor in the emission region is melted and recrystallized. The recrystallized material is highly defective (analogous to scar tissue). This defective material in the emission region may not be observable using optical microscopy. The COD limit of a laser diode can only be determined by increasing the output power until the laser fails catastrophically. The COD limit is the output power when the laser fails divided by the emission area. The practice in the industry is that the COD limit should exceed the output power density during operation by a factor of two to three. The COD limit for most BLI high power laser diodes in the 800 nm to 980 nm spectral region is approximately two megawatts per square centimeter.
