Abstract

We present an empirical model that describes the experimentally observed laser-induced bulk damage and conditioning behavior in deuterated potassium dihydrogen phosphate (DKDP) crystals. The model expands on an existing nanoabsorber precursor model and the multistep absorption mechanism to include two populations of absorbing defects, one with linear absorption and another with nonlinear absorption. We show that this model connects previously uncorrelated small-beam damage initiation probability data to large-beam damage density measurements over a range of nanosecond pulse widths. In addition, this work predicts the damage behavior of laser-conditioned DKDP.
