Abstract

We performed femtosecond laser-induced damage threshold (fs LIDT) measurements with substantially different repetition rate Ti:sapphire laser systems: a 1 kHz regenerative amplifier and a 4.3 MHz long-cavity oscillator. All other pulse parameters are kept the same. Comparative measurements of a dielectric high reflector, a chirped mirror, and metallic mirrors show at least a factor of 2.7 lower fs LIDT at megahertz repetition rates. We attribute this to thermally assisted damage mechanisms supported by complex heat transfer simulations.
