Emphasizes a morphological and phenomenological approach to the study of laser-induced damage. Presents a pictorial record of many of the different phenomena observed, as well as a discussion of scaling laws, cumulative damage and measurement techniques. Helpful appendices provide typical damage thresholds for numerous optical materials over a wide range of wavelengths. Useful for optical and laser physicists, optical system designers and engineers, laser and optical coating manufacturers and students taking courses in optoelectronics, lasers and electro-optics.
