Abstract:

The report describes the results of surface damage experiments performed at 1.06 micrometer on proustite Ag3AsS3 and at 0.694 micrometer on sapphire alpha-Al2O3. A discussion of surface damage morphology of proustite for cw and pulsed illumination is illustrated using optical and scanning electron micrographs. A series of damage threshold studies on ion beam polished sapphire was performed as a continuation of work performed on an earlier program.
