A broadband high-reflection (HR) coating was used to suppress the electric-field intensity (EFI) enhancement in artificial nodules with five different sizes. However, the finitie-difference time-domain simulations reflected that the nodules initiating from seeds showed abnormally stronger EFI enhancement, which is almost two times higher than the EFI enhancement of seeds in a quarter-wave HR coating. This was also confirmed by the laser-induced damage threshold measurement. Our previous model combining light focusing and light penetrating effects was carefully examined to check whether the hotspots in a nodule initiating from the seed were in the focal area or not. Although it was found that the focal length of the nodule decreased with reducing seed diameter, the hotspots in nodules initiating from a seed were still much shallower than the focal area. In the broadband HR coating, the standing-wave EFI profiles at different working angles were given, which showed that the standing-wave EFI at the hotspots region was not negligible. Some complex interference or diffraction may cause the light to arrive at the hotspots region in phase and result in strong EFI enhancement. More work is necessary to gain a deeper understanding of this phenomenon.
