Abstract

The results of experiments on the action of a series of pulses of 1.7-ns radiation of a CO2 laser on copper mirrors have been analyzed. A qualitative explanation of a number of observed experimental regularities is proposed, based on the excitation and energy dissipation of a surface electromagnetic wave by incident radiation in the vacuum–plasma-layer–metal system.
