Paper Abstract

The studies of laser damage resistance of silica glass and fluoride crystals performed at ArF, KrF, and XeF excimer laser wavelengths with a pulse duration of approximately 80 ns have given the following data: the dependence of the bulk damage threshold on irradiated spot size, ranging in value from 6 to 1200 micrometers ; temperature dependence of laser damage resistance; the influence of metal admixtures on damage threshold; the influence of ionizing radiation on damage resistance; the coefficients of nonlinear absorption; frequency dependence of the bulk damage threshold for silica glass in the UV region.
