Paper Abstract

The dynamic process of ablation during continuous laser irradiation was simulated using a finite-difference model. A summary of experimental results suggested a typical ablation velocity and the parameters of the model were adjusted to match this value. Then the model was perturbed by systematically varying each parameter to observe how sensitive ablation velocity was on that particular parameter.
