Abstract
We report the results of an effort to correlate visible small-spot laser damage with changes in the transmittance of optical components at 10.6 pm. The test source used was a pulsed CO2 TEA laser, operating in the lowest order spatial mode and producing plane-polarized, gain-switched pulses of 0.1 is nominal length.
