abstract

The Laser Program at LLNL has developed automated facilities for damage testing optics up to 1 meter in diameter. The system were developed to characterize the statistical distribution of localized damage performance across large- aperture National Ignition Facility optics. Full aperture testing is a key component of the quality assurance program for several of the optical components. The primary damage testing methods used are R:1 mapping and raster scanning. Automation of these test methods was required to meet the optics manufacturing schedule. The automated activities include control and diagnosis of the damage-test laser beam as well as detection and characterization of damage events.
