Paper Abstract

Unique optical design problems occur in the specification of high energy laser systems. The design of each optical component must ensure that no damage will occur in the laser system due to light transmitted, reflected or absorbed by that component. In order to fully assess the possibilities of laser induced damage in the laser system, we use a number of paraxial calculations, real ray traces, and diffraction based calculations. Once problems are identified, solutions must be found to eliminate or minimize damage problems.
