Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 239)


The use of lasers in to modify and characterize materials is an increasingly attractive choice for high technology manufacturing as well as analytical and medical applications. As we push for more demanding tasks and for smaller dimensions, an understanding of the underlying physical and chemical aspects of problems becomes important. Here we discuss some of these issues relevant to most applications involving laser materials interactions.
