For the first time, laser-induced thermal desorption is examined with secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). The desorption of small molecules on a polycrystalline tungsten surface by high-intensity (up to 176 MW/cm2), 1064-nm pulses of 8-10 nsec duration is analyzed by monitoring relative changes in the SIMS intensities. Despite the very high surface temperatures (3000 K) obtained by the absorption of intense laser radiation, the observed changes are much smaller than predicted by the equilibrium model of thermal desorption.
