Paper Abstract

Industrial high power CO2-laser manufacturers strive for the utmost in reliability of their lasers. Since physics is limiting the intrinsic absorption values of optics it is most important to focus on the surface absorption mechanisms which are not yet well understood. AFM techniques are suitable for further investigation into surface related absorption phenomena.
