Paper Abstract

Size increasing of light absorbing inhomogeneity in condensed media is predicted on a model suggested as a result of under threshold laser impulse influence that generates a plasma cloud about the inhomogeneity. The plasma cloud condenses after pulse ending into particle that is composed of both the sources absorbing inhomogeneity substance and media substance. Theoretical investigation of the optical properties changing the matter of the work. It is shown the carbon soot particle and glass mixing in plasma under repetition of laser pulse could lead to changing in pulse energy absorbed part and thus to changing in light damage threshold regarding the mechanism.
