Paper Abstract

The current version of ISO 11254-1 the laser damage standard, calls for the use of the so called damage frequency method. This method uses a linear regression to find the estimate of the damage threshold. Using a similar but physically motivated choice for the regression function will be shown to hold great promise for amelioration of many of the well known foibles of the damage frequency method and there by ISO 11254-1. The efficacy of the new fitting function is shown via a Monte Carlo examination and application to experimental data.
