Abstract

The Laser MégaJoule (LMJ) is a high-power laser dedicated to laser-plasma experiments. At the beginning of the project in the mid-1990s, an optical metrology laboratory was created at CEA to help accomplish all the steps in the construction of this laser. This paper proposes an overview of the capabilities of this metrology laboratory in four main fields: surface imperfections, photometry, laser damage measurement, and wavefront measurement. The specificities for high-power laser optics in each domain are highlighted as well as the specific features that make our instruments unique.
