We have investigated the role of native point defects in the laser damage behavior of amorphous thin films of Sc2O3 deposited by ion beam sputtering. Through systematic characterization and detailed modeling we show that native defects influence the 1-on-1 laser induced damage threshold fluence of the Sc2O3. This effect, as shown by the model and confirmed by experiments, is pulse duration dependent.
