29 July 1992 Laser damage of optically polished KDP crystal
Author Affiliations +
Optical polishing method of large diameter KDP crystals was developed. The surface finishing of KDP crystals was conducted using specially prepared lapping plate and sluny of diamond powder in oil. The optical flatness and the surface roughness of optically polished KDP crystal (2O9mm'x16mmt) were about X/6 and 7- 10 Arms, respectively. The surface damage threshold of about 10 J/cm2 at 1064nm with a pulsewidth of ins was obtained. Key words : laser damage, KDP crystal, optical flatness, surface roughness
