Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the mechanisms by which laser damage occurs and summarises the forms of the resulting damage which have been observed, with examples at both 1.064 and 10.6 μm. Summaries of the laser induced damage threshold measurements made on a wide range of materials, windows, mirrors and optical components are presented at both wavelengths.
