Abstract

Energetic ion species desorption from Al(200nm)/sapphire, Ag(10nm)/Al(200nm)/sapphire and Al(111) targets has been measured tor 244 and 320 nm laser irradiation. The product kinetic energy distribution (KED) for samples irradiated with 244 nm light, for Ag+ and the impurity species K+ resemble the KED of Al+ desorbed from Al(111) and Al/sapphire (< KE > ≈3–4 eV). However, for resonance excitation (320 nm) of the Ag adlayer, all product KEDs shift to lower energy (< KE > ≤1 eV). These results imply that the excitation which leads to ion KE is not due to a local excitation process.
