Cumulative Material Damage from Train of Ultrafast Infrared Laser Pulses
We developed a systematic experimental method to demonstrate that damage threshold ﬂuence(DTF) for fused silica changes with the number of femtosecond laser (800 nm, 65±5 fs, 10 Hz and 600 Hz) pulses. Based on the experimental data, we were able to develop a model which indicates that the change in DTF varies with number of shots logarithmically (lnp) up to a critical value. Above this value, DTF approaches an asymptotic value. Both DTF for a single shot and the asymptotic value as well as the critical value where this happens, are extrinsic parameters dependent on the conﬁguration (repetition rate, pressure and geometry near or at the surface). These measurements indicate that the power of this dependence (p) is an intrinsic parameter independent of the conﬁguration.
