Paper Abstract

Defects responsible for laser damage in visible-wavelength mirrors are observed at nondamaging intensities using a new video microscope system. Studies suggest that a defect scattering phenomenon combined with lag characteristics of video cameras makes this possible. Properties of the video-imaged light are described for multilayer dielectric coatings and diamond-turned metals.
