Absorption of Laser Light

  • Martin von Allmen
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 2)

Abstract

Laser light, in order to cause any lasting effect on a material, must first be absorbed. As trivial as this may sound, absorption very often turns out to be the most critical and cumbersome step in laser processing. An enormous amount of work has been dedicated to investigating laser absorption mechanisms under various circumstances, and a great deal can be learned from this work for the benefit of laser materials processing.
