Paper Abstract

We discuss different manifestations of the laser-induced homogenization (LIH) in the light-diffusing media - an abrupt decrease of the light diffusion in condensed media under the intensive light action. The key mechanisms of the LIH are discussed including the avalanche-like ones. We present the results of the simplest model, describing the LIH arising upon melting of a solid, when the abrupt drop of the light scattering occurs due to homogenization of optical properties of the medium.
