Abstract

Under the radiation of a nanosecond pulse laser, the types of damage and damage profile of fused silica optics are closely related to the surface and subsurface defects of the component. Using the raster-scanning mode to measure the laser-induced damage threshold of fused silica optics, three different types and sizes of damage patterns are found, of which shell damage is the intermediate state and is a bridge connecting submicrometer-size damage and catastrophic damage. This paper mainly studies the mechanism and damage growth law of shell damage, analyzes the model of laser-induced shell damage, and discusses the probability and cause of shell-damage growth.
