Abstract
This paper provides an overview of the current requirements and state of the art for laser quality optics. Particular emphasis is placed on optics for the visible and near in-frared with some discussion of the requirements applicable to higher power commercial CO2 lasers. Requirements for He-Ne and Argon ion lasers are used to exemplify this discussion for commercial applications. Optical requirements for laser fusion systems are used to il-lustrate the state of the art for large optics.
