Abstract
A study is reported of the influence of temporal fluctuations of laser radiation on the development of thermal explosion of absorbing inclusions and on the statistical properties of the laser induced damage in tranparent dielectrics. A fluctuation time scale in which the fluctuations effect the thermal explosion of inclusions is established. An analysis is made of the conditions ensuring control of temporal fluctuations of laser radiation so as to eliminate their influence on the experimental statistical relationships of absorbing inclusions in the bulk and on the surface of a sample.
