Abstract
This paper investigates the laser damage threshold under C.W. CO2 laser irradiation. It has been already shown that the destruction of each mirror is characterized by a critical temperature: the mirror is destroyed when this temperature is reached. The aim of this paper is to compare the laser damage threshold and the critical temperature.
