    These proceedings contain papers presented at the 22nd Symposium on Optical Materials for High-Powered Lasers. Many of the fundamental advances in the field of laser damage to optical materials and components were first reported at these international meetings. Papers divided into 4 sections: Materials and Measurements; Surfaces and Mirrors; Thin Films; and Fundamental Mechanisms.
