Contamination effects on optical damage

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The development and construction of high fluence lasers for inertial confinement fusion such as the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) or the Laser Megajoule in France continues to generate strong interest in the behavior of optical components under intense laser irradiation. the design of such lasers has created significant technological challenges in the area of laser glass, KDP crystal growth, surface finishing, and fused silica damage in the ultraviolet (UV). The damage of fused silica lenses at 355 nm is of particular concern since the optical design requires peak fluences that are very close to ... continued below

The damage of fused silica lenses at 355 nm is of particular concern since the optical design requires peak fluences that are very close to the damage threshold of the most resistant fused silica lenses available today.
