The video illustrates the formation of bubbles during laser exposure of fused silica at high repetition rate. While scanning a line across the specimen, bubbles 'burst' from the laser focus, where non-linear absorption effects and bulk heating take place. By slowing down the scanning velocity, we observe the suppression and disappearance of the bubble bursting events.
