SC051: The Power and Energy Handling Capability of Optical Materials, Components, and Systems
When high-energy beams impinge upon surfaces or pass through optical components, a range of effects occur. These range from absorption to dielectric breakdown that can result in distortion, non-linear absorption, transmission and electro-optic effects. These events result in catastrophic laser-induced damage to both components and systems. The aim of this course is to help system designers and engineers to understand the underlying reasons for these phenomena and to enable them to design systems and specify components to ensure that optimum performance can be gained.
