Paper Abstract

Absorption loss in UV optics during 193nm and 157nm irradiation is investigated by employing a high-resolution calorimetric technique which allows determining both single and two-photon absorptance at low energy densities. UV calorimetry is also employed to investigate laser induced aging phenomena, e.g. color center formation in fused silica. A separation of transient and cumulative effects can be achieved, giving insight into the loss mechanisms. A strong wavelength dependence of the DUV and VUV absorption characteristics in CaF2 substrates is observed. In addition, Hartmann-Shack wavefront measurements are presented, which allow on-line monitoring of laser-induced compaction in fused silica.
