Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this work, we investigate photophysical processes associated with excessive light absorption of 355 nm, nanosecond laser pulses by optical materials. The experimental approaches utilized include time-resolved and steady state emission and Raman scattering spectroscopy. Experiments were performed on KH2PO4 crystals and fused silica.
