    Abstract

    We are completing a thorough expansion of the laser-induced damage-test capabilities at LLNL which allow us to conduct tests under a variety of parameter conditions. We have nine different laser systems which cover the following parameter space:

    LaserWavelength (nm)Max. PRF (Hz)Duration (ns)Peak Fluence (J/cm2)Reptile 11064301065Reptile 2/4532, 266101040, 25Reptile 3355101040Chameleon 31064, 532, 355, 266103> 50Chameleon 101064, 532, 355, 2661010> 50Raster Blaster106417.8860Variable Pulse Laser (VPL)1064Single shot1–100> 70Kilroy106460006510Felix350, 2481002030

    We describe details of the physical configurations of the individual systems, laser and sample diagnostics, and general testing procedures and capabilities. Damage test results are presented in a companion paper at this conference — “Laser Damage Database at 1064 nm”.
