Abstract
The quality of a measurement is a combination of its accuracy and precision. Namely, the ability to repeatedly get the correct result and to agree with results from other’s measurements. This paper develops a theory for the evaluation of the laser damage performance of an optic, a laser damage metric. The theory is formulated as the convolution of the distributions of the underlying physical property, the test procedure and the traceable calibration. This theory is applied to several candidate laser damage metrics. The driving factors on the quality of metrics are isolated and discussed. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of each metric’s driving factor limiting measurement quality and lessons learned for the design of future metrics.
