Paper Abstract

Fundamental aspects of multishot laser damage are considered: thermal instability in an optical medium due to pulseto--pulse accumulation o absorbing derects mechanisms o laser induced detect generation. Eeotive methods or suppressing a deeot rormation to increase laser damage resistance are discussed and illustrated by experimental data or various type optical materials. Key words: multishot and singleshot laser damage instability inclusion accumulation eect 5 thermochemical mechanochemicalprocesses thermoelastic stresses leser damage resistance of crystals and polymers laser conditioning. 1 .
