Abstract
Dynamics of damage formation by focusing intense femtosecond pulses inside the fused silica glass is studied in wide energy range. Damage usually is initiated in the zone near geometrical focus, which is preceded by the zone where beam propagates in the form of multiple filaments. For high repetition rate pulses damage appears as an extended narrow track along the beam path, which forms due to the propagation of the initial damage zone toward the laser source. For low repetition rate pulses extended damage tracks don't form.
