Abstract : This paper describes the optical surface accuracy, reflectance, and laser damage resistance of 002 laser mirrors fabricated by means of Single-Point Diamond Turning (SPDT). Mirror lifetime is discussed. Laser-oriented optical components can be classified into two types: perspective and reflective. Comparatively speaking ,the reflective-type components are believed to be more instrumental in applications requiring high-power and high-power density capabilities. Therefore, developing high-performance reflective mirrors has become a vital subject in advances in laser technology. This paper explores such problems as accuracy of reflective mirrors fabricated with single-point diamond turning technology (hereinafter called SPDT technology), their reflectance with respect to CO2 lasers, and their durability. p5-6
