Abstract
The laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) and damage morphology of antireflection (AR) coatings on quartz and sapphire are investigated. A very interesting phenomena is found in the measurement. In the case of a single pulse laser, the LIDT of the AR coatings on quartz is higher than that of sapphire. On the contrary, for a free-pulse laser, the LIDT of AR coatings on sapphire is higher than that of quartz.
