ARIS KOURIS, OPTICAL SURFACES LTD.

Editor’s note: This is Part 1 of a two-part feature on optics for nuclear research. Part 1 takes a brief look at high-power laser facilities. It also demonstrates the critical role of aspheric optics in these demanding conditions. Part 2, which will run in the October issue, discusses the technical requirements and manufacturing challenges of mirrors and lenses in facilities that use high-power lasers. Coatings and materials choices will also be addressed. Nuclear research laser facilities around the world increasingly use powerful, amplified, ultrashort-duration pulses of coherent...Read full article
