Paper Abstract

Ultrashort pulse laser ablation has become an important tool for material processing. Adding liquids to the process can be beneficial for a reduced debris and heat affected zone width. Another application is the production of ligand-free nanoparticles. By measuring the ablation rate of iron for femtosecond pulsed laser ablation in different solvents and solvent-mixtures, the influence of the solvent properties on the ablation process is studied. The ablation efficiency is quantified by measuring the ablation rate in dependency of the fluence from 0.05 J/cm2 up to 5 J/cm2 in water-ethanol and water-acetone mixtures which are varied in 25 % steps. The ablation rate is significantly influenced by the solvent-mixtures.
