Laser-induced synthesis, deposition and etching of materials

  • S B Ogale
Proceedings Of The Winter School On Laser Material Processing


The field of laser-induced synthesis, deposition and etching of materials is reviewed with an emphasis on the emerging trends and novel adaptations of the basic laser processing concepts. A number of examples are cited to illustrate the issues involved. These include rapid synthesis of titanium nitride by pulsed laser induced reactive quenching at Ti:liquid NH3 interface, laser deposition of good quality thin films of such materials as hot oxide superconductors, zinc ferrite, iron oxide, stainless steel, etc. and laser etching of superconductor films.
