Paper Abstract

Our extensive measurements of damage thresholds for fused silica and several fluorides (LiF, CaF, MgF, and BaF) at 1053 and 526 nm for pulse durations, (tau) , ranging from 275 fs to 1 ns are reported elsewhere at this meeting. A theoretical model based on electron production via multiphoton ionization, Joule heating, and collisional (avalanche) ionization is in good agreement with experimental results.
