Abstract:

Systematization of types and conditions for appearance IR material damages in wide-aperture laser beams based on the results of previous experimental investigations has allowed creation of a technological series of windows for CO2 lasers with the output energy up to 25 kJ in the pulsed mode and the mean output power up to 100 kW in the repetitively pulsed mode. Technological and design methods have been developed to improve the laser-radiation tolerance of the IR materials.
