Paper Abstract

This paper develops expression for the outcome of a binary search measurement of laser damage threshold, using order statistics. Also developed is an expression for the repeatability of the measurement. Results of a recent experiment are used to evaluate the expression for the threshold to determine accuracy and repeatability of a measurement as function of the search length.
