    Abstract

    We have developed a high-purity molybdenum (Mo) mirror by electron-beam melting method (e.b.m. Mo mirror). Its high laser-damage threshold has been demonstrated for the high-power TEA CO2 laser system. The e.b.m. Mo mirror has a damage threshold of 2 to 4 times higher than that of an Au coated glass mirror and had a life time of 3 times longer than that of a powder metallurgy Mo mirror (p.m.Mo mirror) when the laser energy density of higher than 60 J/cm2 was irradiated. We found that on the laser-damage threshold the difference between the e.b.m. Mo mirror and the p.m.Mo mirror was due to the fine surface without voids and the small amount of impurities.
