Abstract

The laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) of a single-layer coating at the nanosecond (ns) regime is obviously lower than an uncoated substrate or a high reflectivity coating coated by the same material. To elucidate this phenomenon, we demonstrate the LIDT of three types of samples at 355 nm with 8 ns. High absorption defects are found at the film–substrate interface by comparing their LIDTs and damage morphologies. These defects originate from the substrate and appear during the coating process. Simulation results show that these defects, coupled to the coating, are mainly responsible for decreasing the damage threshold.
