Laser Ablation and Laser Induced Plasmas for Nanomachining and Material Analysis
The goal of this paper is to introduce the basics of laser ablation. After introducing some general concepts for the description of lasers, and their usefulness in laser micromachining, and of the materials with which they interact, we describe in more details the femtosecond and nanosecond pulse duration regimes.
