Title: Combined advanced finishing and UV laser conditioning process for producing damage resistant optics

Abstract

A method for reducing the density of sites on the surface of fused silica optics that are prone to the initiation of laser-induced damage, resulting in optics which have far fewer catastrophic defects, and are better capable of resisting optical deterioration upon exposure to a high-power laser beam.
