Experimental results show that low-fluence UV laser irradiation induces non-thermal photosputtering from surfaces. The photophysical process is the result of surface electronic excitation and energy pooling at particular sites. We present data which show the preferential removal of arsenic from arsenic doped silicon and the role of plasmon excitation in the species desorption from thin metallic films. The observed phenomena has application in nanofabrication technology.
