Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes our results of S-on-1 testing carried out over the last few years. Our experimental data sets were taken with nanosecond laser pulse durations. An attempt was made to use the same scaling laws with femtosecond pulse widths but it was not successful. The conclusion was made: there is no single model than can universally applied to all kinds of survivability curves. We present this summary with a particular goal of making recommendations to those involved in the periodic review of ISO 21254. A preliminary review of models, describing damage threshold evolution with respect to incident laser pulses, is made.
