Abstract

Laser beams from a 15 ns pulsed Nd: YAG laser are defocused after passing silicon crystals with 400 μm thickness. The beam profile changes into a ring structure at incident laser energies up to 30 mJ and energy densities of 440 mJ/cm2. The experimental deflection angles agree with calculations assuming refractive index changes due to electronhole pairs produced by interband absorption.
