Abstract
Optical components in large aperture optical imaging system are susceptive to intense laser radiation. Optical band pass filter for spectra selection and nonlinear filter for intense laser blocking, are usually focal or near focal elements in imaging system, will more likely to be permanently damaged by high intense unwanted laser irradiating. In order to relate the optical imaging performance degradation to laser irradiating parameters, characteristics of the damage sites and so on, a test facility consisting of scaled electro-optical imaging system and standard imager evaluation system was constructed, and the linear spread function, modulation transfer function, signal transfer function, and noise power spectrum were obtained. Experimental imaging performance degradation law of damaged fused silica and colored glass filters were analyzed. Furthermore, some brief discussions on the imaging performance degradation mechanisms are also presented.
