A number of photon-assisted techniques have recently been employed for processing of materials that include insulators, semi-conductors, metals and superconductors. The present article focuses on three techniques developed by the authors: (a) laser ablation processing for superconductors (b) laser induced forward transport of metals and (c) wavelength control laser induced chemical vapor deposition for magnetic alloys.
