Laser-induced breakdown and laser induced plasma?

  1. Aug 16, 2015 #1
    I am developing a math model to describe laser ablation process considering the plasma. My supervisor want to know the exactly difference between the laser induced breakdown and laser induced plasma. After a lot search, I personally think that the 'breakdown' is the first step of plasma formation. And the plasma can be viewed as the final result of the laser induced breakdown. Can anyone give me a more precise definition between this two concepts? Thanks
