Energy of threshold breakdown of through holes in metal foils of different thicknesses by powerful laser radiation is investigated experimentally. Properties of foil matter at “liquid metalgas” phase transition are revealed. One of controlled parameters of the threshold breakdown is the outlet on the shady side of the target. The threshold breakdown hole is outlet of hole for a given foil thickness when further decrease of energy is not able to create.
