Abstract
We report a numerical study of the main phenomena that are characteristic of the interaction between high-intensity UV laser pulses and solid targets in low-pressure ambient gas. The impact of laser radiation action on solid surface is described by solving the 1D heat conduction equation. The interaction between laser radiation and the plasma expanding in front of target is modeled by the gas-dynamics equations. The model includes laser irradiation absorption by target vapors through Inverse Bremsstrahlung and photoionization absorption. The transit of ablated material from target to collector is treated by a Monte Carlo method. The goal of our study is to determine the influence of the irradiation conditions and the ambient gas pressure upon the velocity, density and temperature of the ejected particles. The results of our analysis are in good concordance with experimental measurements obtained by reactive pulsed laser deposition from Ti and Al targets in low-pressure nitrogen atmosphere.
