Paper Abstract

The purchase of large (15- and 20-cm clear aperture) Brewster-angle laser disks involves the specification of a large number of often conflicting parameters, all of which bear on performance and cost. Furthermore, the laser requirements often approach the state-of-the-art in glass-melting technology and the parameter measurement. This paper enumerates the relevant parameters, the trade-offs made in their selection, and the test procedures and instrumentation required to ensure compliance with the specification.
