Pulse Length Scaling Results at 248 nm


Damage thresholds were measured on a variety of optics at 248 run for both 11 and 36 ns pulse lengths. Test at both pulse lengths were run on each optic. If a power law scaling is assumed, the mean exponent is 0.3 in agreement with results for other wavelengths. The exponents for individual optics range from 0.20 to 0.47. The experimental precision is such that variation in exponents is significant.
