Paper Abstract

Nowadays, more powerful and challenging laser systems are built to meet the need of evolving technology. In this context, the aim of the HiLASE project [1] is to develop a multi-joule picosecond laser system working in kHz repetition rate regime. The outputs of the project will provide not only unique source for both scientific and industrial applications, but also great challenge for supporting technologies. The key parameter of all optical components in laser and beam delivery structure is the laser induced damage threshold, which limits intensities manageable by the system. The following paper presents results of LIDT test of mirrors intended to use in laser system built within the HiLASE project as well as advanced LIDT test station design, which will use HiLASE laser as source.
