10 June 2004 Influence of subsurface cracks on laser-induced surface damage
Author Affiliations +
Cracks can affect laser damage susceptibility in three ways. These are field intensification due to interference, enhanced absorption due to trapped material in the cracks, and increased mechanical weakness. Enhanced absorption is the most important effect.
