Irradiation of sintered Al2O3 plates has been performed using an excimer laser ((lambda) equals 248 nm) and the resulting structural transformation occurring at and near the surface of the plates has been characterized. Low-angle X-ray diffraction reveals a sequence of surface structural modifications which are correlated with the actual energy injection into the material (laser fluence and number of pulses) and the occurrence of very large energy gradient between surface and bulk. At low fluence, surface roughness is increased without any evolution of the initial (alpha) -alumina phase of the materia. Increasing the laser power density results in (gamma) -alumina formation near and at the surface of the plates.
