Evaluation of the Laser Ablation of Transition Metals/Metal Compounds by Time-of-Flight and Optical Spectroscopy
Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings
A fast pulsed beam of neutral metal atoms is produced by laser vaporization of a solid metal or metal compound sample in a modified high-temperature mass spectrometer. Atomic beams of several eV kinetic energy are generated as measured using time-of-flight spectroscopy. The energy range can be controlled with the laser power, similar to studies conducted on thin metal films. The solid samples, however, overcome the problem of short sample lifetime associated with irradiating thin films. Samplesdoi:10.1557/proc-285-99 fatcat:ft3fj7ivkjcchpbab6m35skumm
