1 November 1997 Specification of optical components for a high-average-power laser environment

Optical component specifications for the high-average-power lasers and transport system used in the Atomic Vapor Laser Isotope Separation plant must address demanding system performance requirements. The need for high performance optics has to be balanced against the practical desire to reduce the supply risks of cost and schedule. This is addressed in optical system design, careful planning with the optical industry, demonstration of plant quality parts, qualification of optical suppliers and processes, comprehensive procedures for evaluation and test, and a plan for corrective action.
