Abstract

We present recent advancements in structured, antireflective surfaces on optics, including crystals for high-energy lasers as well as windows for the infrared wavelength region. These structured surfaces have been characterized and show high transmission and laser damage thresholds, making them attractive for these applications. We also present successful tests of windows with antireflective surfaces that were exposed to simulated harsh environments for the application of these laser systems.
