Abstract

Irreversible laser damage phenomena are investigated in pyroelectric and semiconductor ir detector materials. Thermal damage phenomena in these materials are reviewed, and new results are presented. Theoretical models, which successfully describe thermal damage in detector materials, are reviewed, and criteria for the application of these models are discussed.
