29 July 1992 Perfluorinated copolymer coatings for high-power laser applications
Author Affiliations +
Results including 351-nm laser damage threshold data are presented from a study of a perfluorinated copolymer being considered for use in high peak-power lasers. The objective of this work is the hermetic sealing of hygroscopic, optical, nonlinear-conversion crystals by this material with a simultaneous decrease in Fresnel losses at the crystal surfaces. Dramatic effects on short-pulse (0.8 ns) damage thresholds by solvents and/or polymer functional moieties will be shown.
