Abstract
We present a model for the kinetics of laser-induced desorption of atoms from perfect nonmetallic surfaces, based on recent experiments in alkali halides and compound semiconductors. For the sake of specificity we consider situations in which the photon energy Ehv is less than the bandgap energy Egap, so that the density of bulk electronic excitation created by the laser-surface interaction is small. We show desorption-yield calculations as a function of laser intensity for the case of solids with strong electron-lattice coupling (alkali halides) and weak-coupling solids (compound semiconductors). These distinctive features may allow extrapolation to the case of intermediate coupling which includes many technologically important oxides.
