The damage resistance of the surface and bulk of optical materials to high power laser radiation operated in the multipulse mode is known to be in many cases far less (for some materials by 2 orders of magnitude) than that under single shot irradiation. This fact was established a long time ago, but the nature of the phenomenon has not been studied enough so far and keeps attracting interest in view of its practical significance.
