Abstract

Knowledge of laser-induced damage in optical materials cannot advance until definitions, testing procedures, and analytical methods are standardized. Eight laboratories in Europe and the U.S.A. participated in laser-induced damage testing; the papers in the 1 Nov. 1984 issue of Applied Optics discuss their findings.
