Abstract : The optical portion of a device for delivering high energy densities of optical frequency electromagnetic radiation to a point in space is discussed. The energy is assumed generated in an active laser material. The problems of extracting this energy coherently and focusing it are considered. Limitations due to optical material considerations and fabrication restraints are investigated. (Author)
