Paper Abstract

From the perspective of the OEM user, the lifetime and reliability of lasers is discussed. Field failure symptoms are related to failure modes within laser systems. Hard and soft failure modes are discussed along with a description of normal failure probability statistics. Hard sealed integral mirror and brewster window plasma tube lifetime are compared.
