Paper Abstract

An extensive literature exists concerning the phenomena that occur when laser radiation interacts with solids or fluids. The nature of the interaction depends greatly on the optical, mechanical, and thermal properties of these materials. There can be such things as plasma generation if the radiation is absorbed in short distances or nonlinear optical behavior leading to "filamenting, " "banana peeling, " or harmonic generation in the more transparent materials (Ref. 1, 2).
