Each optical element used in high-power laser systems dedicated to space missions should be well-tested and certified on Earth. Failed optical elements can’t be replaced in space. Thus, it causes a risk to the whole space mission. Optics resistance to intense laser irradiation and optics lifetime characterization for space applications is not an easy task. At Lidaris we have developed several techniques that could be applied to successfully certify optical elements for space missions. Stop by our booth S21 to learn more. We will be happy to share our experience solving laser damage issues!
