Author Affiliations +
In this paper, the benefits of energetic reactive coating are first briefly introduced. Detailed performance improvement data are supplied for durability, absorption, scatter and mechanical stress. Pictures of the 2-m chambers are presented, an example of a large laser optic is shown, and technical details peculiar to large-area coating are discussed. Finally, laser damage data available to date are discussed, and the challenges of high laser damage resistance over large areas are outlined as a guide to future work.
