There are a number of applications that would avail a pulse pattern in the form of closely grouped and uniformly spaced pulses, i.e., bursts . Closely grouped pulses with pulse to pulse separation in the order of a few nanoseconds have a potential for increasing material removal rates  and thereby reducing the thermal effects. Besides, keeping the burst repetition period in the order of thermal relaxation time has the advantage of keeping the overall average power at lower levels in order to prevent the cumulative heating of the material. © 2013 IEEE.
