Title: Explosive boiling of metals upon irradiation by a nanosecond laser pulse

A repeated effect of explosive boiling has been found in metals exposed to a nanosecond laser pulse in the framework of molecular dynamic simulations combined with a continuum description of a conduction band electrons system. This effect can be used, in particular, as a marker of approaching critical parameters of the region in the irradiated matter. (letters)
