Paper Abstract

Laser induced damage threshold is a key parameter for all components in high-power laser system, establishing limits of maximum achievable energy, and consequently average power. To provide reliable and stable laser sources, desirable both in academic and industrial area, involved components has to be tested and meet certain quality criteria. To provide such laser source is the goal of HiLASE project, where the development of scalable kW-class laser delivering ps pulses in kHz repetition rate is taking place. Broadband, high damage threshold mirrors are one of the key components for future installations and their development is carried out synergistically with laser system and LIDT station.
