Paper Abstract

Single-crystal cheinically/isotopically pure synthetic diamond operated at low temperature offers an unusual opportunity for a small transparent optic that may transmit as much as tens to hundreds of megawatts of light , even in the presence of high peak power in the light beam. This property stems from the probable very low absorption of light in such material and the nature of the phonon energy transport at low temperatures.
