Paper Abstract

A scaling relation for laser-induced damage is developed which allows scaling from single- pulse thresholds for a given set of conditions to repetition-rate thresholds at various spot sizes and pulse durations. Damage test results on AgGaS2, for single, 26.5 psec pulses are scaled to 350 psec pulses at 95 MHz repetition rate. Damage test results for 300 psec pulses at 75 MHz and 150 psec pulses at 95 MHz are compared with these scaled thresholds.
