Paper Abstract

Optical components needed for high-average-power lasers, such as those developed for Atomic Vapor Laser Isotope Separation (AVLIS), require high levels of performance and reliability. Over the past two decades, optical component requirements for this purpose have been optimized, and performance and reliability have been demonstrated. Many of the optical components that are exposed to the high-power laser light affect the quality of the beam as it is transported through the system. The specifications for these optics, including a few parameters not previously reported and some component manufacturing and testing experience, are described.
