Laser Induced Damage to Thallium Arsenic Selenide (TAS)


We present results of a study of the laser induced damage thresholds of Tl3AsSe3 at 10 μm using nanosecond and picosecond pulses. The damage threshold was found to be ≃10 J/cm2 with 130 ns (FWHM) and no damage was observed using 60 ps pulses.
