    The familiar Bouguer-Lambert-Beer absorption law, often called Beer's law, is an essential component of many laser ablation propulsion models. However, its treatment in non-planar conditions requires a consideration of irradiation geometry. Forms of the absorption law are derived for cylindrical...
