Paper Abstract

The use of pure diamond as a high power optical material will depend on its absorption, the effects of nonlinear processes (high peak power beams), and on the ablility to remove absorbed energy from the diamond. This paper speculates on how acoustic matching in diamond could be used at low temperature to permit escape of ballistic phonons generated by megawatt beams.
