Abstract:

The window materials that are under investigation include selected alkali halides and alkaline earth fluorides, in both single and polycrystalline form and of alloyed and unalloyed composition. The enclosed papers discuss the results of work reported at the topical meeting on High Power Laser Optical Components and Component Materials and the Materials for High Power Laser Symposium at the National Bureau of Standards facility in Boulder, Colorado, October 3-6, 1977. The papers are relevant to the major task subdivisions of our program surface finishing, reactive atmosphere processing, window coatings, optical evaluation and infrared ellipsometry measurements.
