Laser induced breakdown (LIB) thresholds of the AgClxBr1-x (0 2 lasers. Bulk and surface crystal/polycrystalline samples and fibers were investigated. The intrinsic LIB threshold of the crystals is dependent on x and are 3.8$CTR108W/cm2 for x equals 1; 8.2$CTR102W/cm2 for x equals 0 under 100 ns TEA CO2 laser excitation. The LIB threshold in fibers is roughly 2$CTR107W/cm2.
