Abstract
The results of laboratory and numerical experiments on propagation of focused intense pulse-periodic and continuous CO2-laser radiation in the absorbing gas and aerosol media are presented. It is established that focal waist of a laser beam is characterized by reduced heat release that is associated with absorption saturation. It is shown that increase of pulse repetition frequency in a train decreases effect of optical breakdown on path transparence since under the condition of constant mean radiation power peak intensity in each pulse decreases and probability of breakdown onset is reduced.
