Paper Abstract

A well controlled damage testing facility is vital for establishing confidence in production coatings for high power laser operation and for the understanding of damage phenomena. An upgraded damage test facility at LLNL now allows better control in measuring damage thresholds and absorption of thin film coatings as well as examination of sites where damage first occurs. A description of the system configuration using lasers from the Laser Isotope Separation (LIS) at the Laser Demonstration Facility (LDF) as well as the methods used to acquire damage thresholds will be given.
