Space laser systems are widely used in communication, altimeter and Doppler radar. UV laser, which possesses high spectral resolution and provides with the detection of the parallel polarized molecular (Rayleigh) and particle (Mie) backscattered signals has promising use in atmosphere detection and Doppler radar. No orbiting satellite carrying with 355nm laser has yet been launched owing to the laser induced damage of coatings. Coatings for spaceborne laser system are widely used in spacecraft with laser system to improve the transmittance of the optical system and to adjust the laser beams. An effective way to improve the lifetime of the coatings and the resistance to the environment is to increase laser induced damage threshold (LIDT). The subsurface damage (SSD) of the substrate is one of the major harmful factors in laser induced damage. In our study, 355nm high-reflection (HR) and anti-reflective (AR) coatings deposited by dual-ion beam sputtering (DIBS) were stable and showed lit
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
