Paper Abstract

A phenomenological model for accumulation of irreversible changes initiated by absorbing inclusion in transparent dielectric material under laser radiation is proposed. Kinetics of the accumulation process is investigated for both highly absorbing and low absorbing inclusions. Main regularities of the accumulation effect are derived, particularly the dependence of multishot damage threshold upon a number of pulses. Results of the theoretical analysis are compared with experimental data.
