Abstract

The experimental investigations of the interaction of the pulsed laser radiation with different types of thin films are presented. Polycluster diamond films, aluminum nitride films, and indium tin oxide films were investigated. A high efficiency inelastic scattering of light due to optoacoustic interaction was registered. The spectral features of the scattered light are defined by the morphology of the samples.
