Paper Abstract

Measurements on several high-reflection (HR) metallic mirrors were performed, and multiple-pulse laser induced damage thresholds (LIDT) were estimate according to the draft International Standard ISO/DIS 11254 using S on 1 tests at 1064 nm. The experimental set-up was based on Q-switched, diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser. Transmission increase was used for an in situ measurement of damage. The characteristic damage curves were plotted and multiple-pulse damage thresholds were determined at 30-Hz pulse-repetition rate, while the number of pulses varied up to 300.
