Abstract
Mirrors and gratings used in high power ultra fast lasers require a broad bandwidth and high damage fluence, which is essential to the design and construction of petawatt class short pulse lasers. Damage fluence of several commercially available high energy broad band dielectric mirrors with over 100 nm bandwidth at 45 degree angle of incidence, and pulse compression reflection gratings with gold coating with varying processing conditions is studied using a 25 femtosecond ultra-fast laser.
