Paper Abstract

This paper presents an explicit derivation of relative damage threshold for entrance, exit and total internal reflection (TIR) surfaces where the TIR surface is either coated or contaminated. The derivation follows the same arguments as presented in earlier works which dealt with an uncoated or clean TIR surface.
