Abstract
Theoretical investigations on the generation and propagation of density perturbations have been performed using a two-dimensional unsteady finite-difference method. In comparing typical results for CO2 and excimer lasers it becomes evident that both the formation and the physical impacts of the perturbations differ substantially. At equal values of deposited energy density the relative density variation is ore than an order of magnitude higher in the CO2 laser, whereas, due to their different wave lengths the resulting phase shift is about the same in both systems. In the excimer laser the beam quality will be detracted by only the perturbations of the preceeding pulses whereas in the CO2 laser the density change due to the pulse under consideration itself additionally leads to phase distortions.
