Paper Abstract

Evaluation of laser-induced damage in optical coatings employing a surface inclusion adhesion layer model is presented. The effects of thermal and optical absorption of an inclusion adhesion layer on a coating surface irradiated by a laser pulse can induce coating damage. The effects of the adhesion layer extinction coefficient, thickness, and heat conductivity on the laser-induced damage threshold of the coating are investigated by thin-film temperature field distribution analysis. Laser-induced damage on high-reflectance (HR) multilayer and ion-beam-sputtered coatings are analyzed.
