Do the short pulse durations of ultrafast lasers impact the laser induced damage threshold of ultrafast optics?

Yes, short ultrafast pulses interact with optical coatings and substrates in a way that is different from other laser pulses, leading to different damage mechanisms. For more information, please read our LIDT for Ultrafast Lasers application note.
