Gentec ED-200 Absorber Surface Damage

Having grossly exceeded the Gentec ED-200 maximum power spec, I wasn’t surprised to see this when I finally tucked it back in the drawer:

The 0.5 mm scale suggests the damage came from a defocused 2 mm beam or the hot central part of a larger beam, but I obviously wasn’t paying enough attention at the time.

The rest of the surface seems undamaged, so this may have been one of those inadvertent long-duration pulses or several shorter shots in one spot.
