Abstract

The interaction of an excimer laser with an aluminum surface was studied by a characterization of the blowoff plasma plume. The SDIO/MLI 2-m laser, operating at XeF and KrF wavelengths, was used to illuminate millimeter sized spots on aluminum targets in vacuum at fluences of 400–1250 J/cm2 for 1.8 μs.
