14 July 1986 Laser Design Characteristics As They Relate To Substrates For Transmissive And Reflective Optics

Abstract
The design characteristics of a laser such as the wavelength of operation and the power level influence the type and properties of the substrate material which will be useful for the particular application. Optical material for near UV, visible, and near IR applications will be discussed, with the main emphasis on glass. The properties of the optical material which are of primary concern are the transmission range, striae, birefringence, homogeneity, and inclusions. In certain applications the laser damage threshold may be of importance. Each of these properties will be discussed.
