Abstract
Atmospheric aerosols can limit laser beam propagation and reduce energy transfer to work-pieces by creating shielding plasmas. The purpose of this paper is to get results for plasma ignition thresholds depending on incoming laser power density, kind and density of impurities in the interaction volume.
