Laser Beam Characterization

This tutorial is focused on overview of principles, approaches, and methods of characterization of later beams. Measurements of beam quality, diameter of laser spot on target surface, and other laser-beam parameters are inevitable for accurate measurements of laser-damage thresholds. The tutorial covers those topics to educate the next generation of the laser-damage research community.
