Abstract
Crater formation that accompanies laser-induced damage is the result of material ejection following the rapid, localized heating to temperatures on the order of 1 eV. The objective of this work is to compare the material ejection behavior in fused silica and KDP crystals as captured using time-resolved shadowgraphy. These two materials are of fundamental importance in ICF class laser systems but they also represent materials with significantly different physical properties. We hypothesize that these different properties can affect the material ejection process.
