Paper Abstract

Transient and permanent UV absorption bands and fluorescence bands induced by 248 nm excimer laser radiation in fused silica are reported. It is shown that the permanent absorption measurements are not suitable to characterize the material with respect to transmission of high power laser pulses. In fused silica samples with high OH - content recovery of the 210 nm absorption band is observed after the end of irradiation. In samples with low OH - content no quick re covery is observed. 1 .
