Abstract
The functional lifetime of large aperture optical components used in high power lasers, like LIL and LMJ facilities, is mainly determined by laser damage measurements. We present experimental procedures and statistical analysis, made on small samples with mm-size beams, to determine damage densities and damage growth laws. The tests and analysis are compared to other results obtained with larger beams (few cm2) on large aperture components.
