Role of defects in laser-induced modifications of silica coatings and fused silica using picosecond pulses at 1053 nm: II. Scaling laws and the density of precursors.

Abstract

We investigate the role of defects in laser-induced damage of fused silica and of silica coatings produced by e-beam and PIAD processes which are used in damage resistant, multi-layer dielectric, reflective optics. We perform experiments using 1053 nm, 1-60 ps laser pulses with varying beam size, number of shots, and pulse widths in order to understand the… (More)
