Abstract

This work is dedicated to the study of so-called fatigue effects upon nanosecond laser-induced damage of several crystalline materials and synthetic fused silica irradiated by multiple pulses. The obtained damage probability versus fluence and pulse number data are exploited to determine if the observed fatigue is due to statistics (the more often the material is irradiated, the higher the probability for it to be damaged) or to material modification under irradiation. Whereas 1064 nm irradiation seems to be responsible for statistic behavior, 355 nm irradiation generates material modifications in the case of synthetic fused silica.
