Abstract

We demonstrate that a highly efficient global optimization of chirped mirrors can be performed with the memetic algorithm. The inherently high sensitivity of chirped-mirror characteristics to manufacturing errors can be reduced significantly by means of the stochastic quasi-gradient algorithm. The applicability of these algorithms is not limited to chirped mirrors.
