Abstract
The experimental setup was established for studying damage effects on silicon photoelectric detector materials induced by 800nm and 150fs repetitively-pulsed laser. The detector is irradiated by single shot and multiple shots respectively. The laser damage thresholds of silicon photoelectric detector material were measured. The surface morphologies of the material damaged by laser were analyzed. The surfaces damaged by laser with different energy were compared. The thresholds vary with the number of laser shots. According to the accumulation theory, the damage threshold is the power function of the shot number. Experimental results show that threshold of single shot that damages the silicon photoelectric detector is 0.156J/cm2. The laser damage threshold decreases with the increasing number of laser pulses, but the minimum value exists. The damage is mainly caused by the mechanical effect rather than thermal effect. In fact, the thermal effect during the interaction is so small that it can’t even be observed. Resistivity of the silicon photoelectric detector irradiated by femtosecond laser decreases and finally tends to a constant value.
