Hi there! I wanted to make a thread here asking folk about their interactions with materials and lasers! In particular, optical phenomena and visible reactions to lasers aside from the obvious few (Ex: Fluorescence from low-wavelength near UV Violet Lasers{Specifically around the 405nm range}. | Fuel compounds igniting from high power output LASER. | Carbonization of general organic material.)

What I'd like to learn is what materials people have found involving solids, or other liquids, or gases and any other general interesting optical phenomena people have observed from LASER absorption of the material or through visual components of the beam passing through a substance causing a change in the the light being emitted in particular.

When I ask this I'm asking in particular about stuff similar to Dichroic mirrors, and ANYTHING involving physical interference with the wavelengths of Light being emitted.

Thank you all lots if any of you manage to get to posting their nifty findings!

If you want to know what Optics do --gets some books on optics or perhaps have a look at the Edmund Optical catalog - Laser Optics https://www.edmundoptics.com/c/laser-optics/754/?utm_source=website&utm_medium=homepage&utm_campaign=homepage products&utm_term=laseroptics#

"general interesting optical phenomena people have observed from LASER absorption of the material " ?
Makes no sense at all.

"When I ask this I'm asking in particular about stuff similar to Dichroic mirrors " What stuff and similar in what way?
See: https://www.rp-photonics.com/dichroic_mirrors.html

There are dozens of whole books and thousands of papers published on Laser-Matter Interactions and Laser-Material Interactions.
You would be much better off searching Google and learning about the topics .
Is an absurdly large/huge interdisciplinary area of study and knowledge.

You might have a chance of getting an answer if you narrow it down to a species specific meaningful question--meaning less broad than "ANYTHING involving physical interference with the wavelengths of Light being emitted. "/Everything about anything you can shine a laser on/lasers interacting w. anything that exists.

Tip of the iceberg stuff---see maybe Chapter 1Review of laser-matter interaction here: https://www.io.csic.es/Web_GPL/personal_pages/Jan/thesis/Chap1.pdf

Ah, thank you for these links! I'll check these out.

Well, peanut butter will fluoresce for a second or two if you hit it with a 405nm laser.

INTERESTING, phosphorescence! I've never heard that it could do that before! Thank you so much for this!
