The object of this study is the dynamic processes occurring when the radiation of a ruby laser is focused on a glass. When producing radiation with a density of about 10 to the 10th power wsq cm in the focal volume of the lens, failure takes place in a transparent substance. This failure appears as the center of a shock wave.
