Paper Abstract

High average power laser systems require optical components with increasingly higher performances: high laser damage resistance, high reflectance or transmittance. We report here some results obtained with TiO2/SiO2 and ZrO2/SiO2 low losses mirrors designed for copper vapor lasers. Very low losses (40 ppm) are obtained with TiO2/SiO2; losses down to 400 ppm and laser damage thresholds up to 35 kW/cm2 are obtained with ZrO2/SiO2.
