Abstract
Optical and laser beams do not necessarily have smooth spatial and temporal distributions. These distributions may arise from the source itself -- e.g., multilongitudinal and/or transverse mode laser beams. They may be affected by the physical properties, distortions, refractive index variations and surface finish of the optical components and the optical coatings in the beam path. This paper discusses and shows examples of the influence of the various parameters on the transmitted beam quality and ultimately on the laser induced damage threshold and usefulness of the optical components themselves.
