Paper Abstract

Laser ablation of pure metals by femtosecond, picosecond and nanosecond pulses is studied in air at atmospheric pressure. Craters created after interaction of visible and UV laser pulses with the targets are investigated. The dependence of the ablation efficiency in terms of ablated volume per unit of energy on the pulse duration is discussed.
