Abstract : It has been demonstrated in that a large number of microcracks covered with carbon black are formed within polycarbonate (PC) when it is struck by a powerful light flux. These microformations should probably have a definite influence on the strength properties of a polymer specimen. This work is dedicated to the study of this influence. (Author)
