Paper Abstract

This paper presents an explicit derivation of relative damage threshold for entrance, exit and total internal reflection (TIR) surfaces. This rederivation presented in this paper is necessary, since the literature due to Crisp is in disagreement over the results for TIR surfaces. As it was not clear which reference is the correct calculation, a careful and explicit revisitation is required to adjudicate between the two works. Specifically, reference 2 (Crisp 1973), gives as equation (8) the ratio of entrance face to s to p polarization thresholds.
