Abstract
Large, short-pulsed CO2 laser systems have been developed to investigate the feasibility of laser driven fusion. Metal mirrors are an important component in these systems. This paper discusses CO2 systems and mirror considerations. Mirror material constraints and choices as well as fabrication techniques are reviewed.
