Abstract. Analyzed on the example of CdTe are formation and propagation of shock waves during pulsed laser irradiation of a solid surface. It is shown that before the appearance of a shock wave in a solid, a gradual increase in pressure gradient leads to formation of dislocations, density of which increases with depth. The dislocation density is maximum at the place of shock wave formation.

Keywords: pulsed laser irradiation, CdTe, dislocation density.
