Paper Abstract

The laser induced damage densities measured on fused silica surface are found to be higher when produced with multiple longitudinal mode pulses than those produced by single longitudinal mode pulses at 1064 nm. The enhancement of the three-photon absorption due to the intensity spikes related to longitudinal mode beating might favor the damaging process at this wavelength. At 355 nm the picture is different. The absorption is supposed to be linear and an opposite behavior occurs. Evidences of a process leading to the possible annealing of a part of absorbent defects are discussed in this paper.
