Paper Abstract

The ELI-beamlines project will use high power ultrafast lasers with high average powers up to 1kW and peak powers up to 10PW. The project presents a major challenge in terms of damage threshold of ultrafast mirror coatings and gratings. In order to assess the LIDT of ultrafast coatings in the expected environments a test station was constructed in the PALS facility. The setup can use beams from a 25TW Ti:Sapphire laser system with a 10Hz repetition rate. Testing is performed mainly with a secondary 1 kHz 40fs while contamination levels are investigated.
