Abstract

A model for describing laser-induced damage in optical materials by nanosecond laser pulses is investigated. The laser-damage critical fluence is obtained based on calculating the light absorption of nanoabsorbers by using Mie theory and solving the heat equation. Considering a power law distribution of nano-absorbers, we calculated the damage probability at the surface of fused silica including Pt particles. The theoretical results calculated with appropriate parameters are applied to fit the experimental data in order to identify the properties of nanodefects.
