Abstract

This paper discusses the main mechanisms of laser transport of matter. The method of decontamination of metallic surfaces by laser transport is considered. The dependence of the thickness of the removed layer on the power density of the laser radiation is investigated. The boundaries of the evaporative and thermomechanical regimes of laser decontamination are determined. A method of oblique decontamination is proposed.
