Designing Mirrors for Ultrafast Lasers

Rafał Biedrzycki , Jarosław Arabas , Michał Szymański


The chapter reports on a successful application of evolutionary computation techniques to a practical problem. Differential Evolution (DE) and Covariance Matrix Adaptation (CMA-ES) were applied to the computer-aided design of a highly dispersive mirror which was dedicated for use in an ultrafast laser. A complete path of the design process is presented, starting from formulation of the optimization problem to the hardware implementation of the mirror. The best structure of the mirror, which was generated by CMA-ES, was manufactured using epitaxial coating technology. Measurements confirmed that the design requirements were met by the device.
