Abstract : A description of the scope of work and important results from AASERT funding is presented. The major areas of sutdy included the types of defects produced by mechanical deformation, fracture, polishing, and abrasion on inorganic single crystals and polymer surfaces and the way these defects interacted with UV laser irradiation. The use of photoluminescence to quantitatively and spatially characterize these defects is described. The role of such defects in the way intense laser light couples to normally transparent materials was also investigated. jg p1
