Abstract
There are presented initial results of investigation of influence of local optical and thermal parameters of thin dielectric films and optical coatings with inhomogeneous micromorphology on light propagation. Linear and nonlinear light propagation accompanied by laser-induced heating have been considered. Modeling is used to investigate the process described by coupled nonlinear equations. Obtained results show critical role of nonlinear phenomena resulting in formation of local maxima of laser intensity inside the films which is followed by highly inhomogeneous local heating of the films.
