Lasers and Their Application


The effect of nonlinear limiting of laser radiation power by aqueous suspensions of carbon particles is analyzed by solving the equations of heat conduction, hydrodynamics, and phase transition dynamics self-consistently with the problem of light scattering, absorption, and passage through an extended medium. The results of computer simulation and experiments are compared.
