Abstract

The mechanisms of laser induced damage was studied using experimental approach. The damage thresholds of deuterated potassium dihydrogen phosphate (DKDP) were measured from the near ultraviolet into the visible using an optical parametric oscillator (OPO) laser. The overall damage thresholds were reduced because the effective cross section for a multistep process was larger than that of a single step.
