17 January 1989 The Potential Of Diamond As A Very High Average Power Transmitting Optical Material

Abstract
Optics are an integral part of lasers, whose size and power output have grown greatly in the last several decades. As the power levels grow, the need for compatible high-power optical materials has also grown. Laser designers know that the limits on intracavity and extracted power are set by the damage to the laser optics rather than by what can be generated in the laser medium. The limits on laser power imposed by materials properties and their processing apply to high peak and average power systems and to reflecting and transmitting optics.
