Paper Abstract

In this paper, the benefits of energetic reactive coating are first briefly introduced. Detailed performance improvement data are supplied for durability, absorption, scatter and mechanical stress. Pictures of the 2-m chambers are presented, an example of a large laser optic is shown, and technical details peculiar to large-area coating are discussed. Finally, laser damage data available to date are discussed, and the challenges of high laser damage resistance over large areas are outlined as a guide to future work.
