Abstract
Features of multiple-shot laser-induced damage to optical materials are analyzed. The methodology of studying the accumulation effect responsible for catastrophic damage, based on the statistical approach, is suggested, and the basic characteristics of multiple-shot damage are introduced. Possible mechanisms of microdamage in materials under multiple laser irradiation are discussed. The experimental data on the laser-induced damage to optical polymer materials which demonstrate some basic properties of the accumulation effect are presented. The ways of suppressing the accumulation effect in transparent polymers which result in a considerable increase of laser damage resistance are proposed.
