Paper Abstract

Basic mechanisms of laser ablation and the most recent results of laser ablation research are discussed here with a focus on semiconductor materials. The pulsed laser evaporation and epitaxy (PLEE) method, which has been developed for epitaxial growth of Cd1-xMnxTe (CMT) thin films and CdTe-CMT multiple quantum wells and superlattices, is reviewed. This method of deposition is based on the application of Nd:YAG and XeCl excimer lasers which are exclusively used for the ablation of solid targets: no other vapor generation devices, such as Knudsen cells, are used in PLEE. Microstructures of CdTe- Cd1-xMnxTe (0 < x < 0.70) have been grown by the ablation of CdTe, Cd1-xMnxTe and Cd targets.
