Paper Abstract

The push for ever more powerful and shorter laser pulse sources demands optical coatings that can handle large bandwidths while operating near the threshold of permanent damage. We review some of the current challenges in the understanding of film behavior under load and opportunities that arise from tailored coating stacks for nonlinear optical harmonic generation.
