Paper Abstract

Atomic-force microscopy of pulsed and cw Nd:laser-irradiated Y2O3 monolayer coatings reveals that fluences insufficient to eject film-defect nodules are able to prompt formation of structural film features that we characterize and whose formation by linear absorption we establish. These features can be identified as precursors for conventional damage morphologies, i.e., craters.
