In contrast to pulsed laser-induced damage, no visible damage occurs in the dark image. Therefore, only the bright images were used to analyze the visible damage. First damage occurred in case of the monochrome CMOS cameras for exposure times of 0.25, 1, 5, and 10 s at a power density of 85, 85, 57, and , respectively. The shape of the damage was mostly circular and slightly blurred, because the damaged pixel became less sensitive but did not fail completely. The damage appeared dark in the flat-field image in opposition to the pulsed-laser damage, where the damage appeared white in the flat-field image. We also observed line damage starting from a power density of . From the fit in Fig. 9(a), we got a damage threshold depending on the exposure time of . Obviously, the slope of the lines in red and black are different from those in green and blue. According to Eq. (4), different slopes are associated with different RBD .
