Paper Abstract

There are reviewed and summarized several theoretical models describing various mechanisms of developing of laser-induced temperature and field instabilities in both absorbing and nonabsorbing microinclusions. Most attention is paid to application of the models to investigation of laser-induced damage. General criterion for evaluation of damage threshold is deduced from presented models and discussed.
