Abstract

This paper discusses nonthermal photoinduced phenomena on the surface of solids that make it possible to control the processes of depositing a new phase. It is proposed to use the phenomenon of photodesorption of metal atoms from the surface of transparent insulating materials to shift the threshold for condensing a metal on the surface of an insulator. It is shown that nonuniform surface illumination can be used to form metallic nanostructures whose shape is determined by the irradiance distribution on the substrate surface.
