The advance of high-power laser technology is dependent on the rate of
advancement in laser glass forming and surface preparation. The threshold
damage of glass surfaces continues to be a weak link in the overall advance-
ment of laser technology. Methods were developed and used in the evaluation
of existing glass surface preparation techniques. Modified procedures were
evaluated to reduce surface contamination and subsurface defects. Polishing
rates were monitored under controlled polishing conditions (purity, pH,
particle size distribution, particle concentration etc.). Future work at LIL
for this ongoing investigation are described.
