Ablation of metals with picosecond laser pulses: Evidence of long-lived non-equilibrium conditions at the surface

Gamaly, Eugene G; Madsen, Nathan; Duering, M.; Rode, Andrei V; Kolev, Vesselin Z; Luther-Davies, Barry


We report here experimental results on laser ablation of metals in air and in vacuum in similar irradiation conditions. The experiments revealed that the ablation thresholds in air are less than half those measured in vacuum. Our analysis shows that this
