Paper Abstract

Recently reported experiments have investigated the statistics of laser damage in KDP and KD*P. Automated damage tests have allowed cumulative failure and damage probability distributions to be constructed. Large area tests have investigated the feasibility of on-line laser conditioning and damage evolution for tripler harmonic generation crystal on the NIF. These test have shown that there is a nonzero probability of damage at NIF redline fluence and that the damage pinpoint density evolves exponentially with fluence.
