Webinar: Optics for High Power Laser Applications
12:00am - 11:59pm
The field of laser optics, while by no means new, continues to be a subject of confusion and frustration, but also exciting innovation. Recent developments in laser technologies have enabled ever higher powers, with industrial systems exceeding 20kW and defense systems achieving 100kW or more. In this talk, Turner reviews the state of the art of key aspects of laser optics design, manufacture, and testing. He also discusses recent innovations and areas of active development.
