Abstract
In this work the conditions have been determined necessary for the realization of intrinsic optical breakdown of glasses and its regularities have been studied. Under focusing of the neodymium laser radiation in spots of 0.4-0.8 micrometers diameters statistical spread in breakdown threshold values, temporal and size dependence are absent. Breakdown threshold for glass K-8 and fused quartz KY-1 are similar and are almost 1013 W/cm2, i.e., 6(DOT)107 V/cm. Based on results obtained in this work, a model of mechanisms of intrinsic optical breakdown of glasses has been proposed.
