The many unique properties of diamond make it useful for laser optics. Diamond has a thermal stress parameter significantly higher than other materials. Laser damage thresholds of free-standing diamond film windows, diamond films deposited on silicon substrates and bare silicon substrates were measured. As expected the free-standing diamond films showed a high laser damage threshold. The film-substrate combination had a lower damage threshold which is attributed to film stress and conditions of film deposition. Dielectric breakdown induced by laser radiation may be the damage mechanism.
