Heavy fluorocarbons are used for stimulated Brillouin scattering mirrors and compression. In this article, we studied the change of absorption spectrum of FC-72 and FC-75 due to the exposure to intense laser pulses. The fluorocarbons have been exposed to laser beams at 1064, 532, and 266 nm. The result shows limitation on the use of these materials for UV pulse compression.
