Paper Abstract

By direct observation of individual damage sites on the surface of a component, the local fluence of every damage site was obtained. This more accurate measurement was used to evaluate the real defect density at each fluence. These results were compared to some others, calculated from damage fluences distributions, obtained from R/1 test. Results presented here concern fused silica with a regular polish. The experimental set up used for this work was equipped with a 3.7ns Nd:YAG pulsed laser at 1 (omega) . The laser beam diameter was 1.1mm and the angle of incidence was close to 0 degrees.
