Abstract
In order to study the scaling laws of optical components, we set up a model based on the heat conduction theory and thermodynamic theory. Then the similarity theory was used to the model analyzation. Finally, we demonstrate three conclusions which are related to the practical engineering application. The first one is that thermal damage behaviors of different scale optical components are similar when the linear power density of irradiated laser are the same. In other words, we should use the linear power density to represent the resistance of damage tolerance for optical components The second one is the judgement standard of scram time. We find the scram time of large-aperture system is certain times as much as the scram time of small-aperture system. The third one is about how to design the scaled experiment can we make two different scale laser systems obey the similar thermal damage behaviors. This study is of great help for the damage prevention of the optical components.
