Abstract
This paper introduces the role of search length in laser damage threshold measurements. It is shown that the search length, the number of interrogations, is an important parameter in the determination of threshold. Order statistics are introduced to be able to scale from one search length to another. This scaling is applied to experimental data and shown to account for differences between measurements made on similar samples by different organizations.
