Paper Abstract

Multi-shot investigations of Ti:sapphire laser (wavelength (lambda) approximately equals 800 nm) induced damage were performed in three different laboratories (BAM, Berlin; LZH, Hannover; UNM, Albuquerque). The ablation behavior of a high reflecting mirror consisting of alternating (lambda) /4- layers of Ta2O5 and SiO2 was studied. Fused silica served as substrate. The influence of the pulse duration ((tau) equals 13 - 130 fs), the pulse number (30 - (infinity) ) and the repetition rate (10 Hz - 100 MHz) on the damage threshold will be discussed.
