Paper Abstract

Laser ablation of metals by femto- and picosecond pulses is analytically and numerically studied within the framework of different models for the ablated material. Within the plasma model ablation is initiated by high-power thermal and hydrodynamic waves which propagate into the irradiated material. Analytical expressions for the thermal ablation and for the ablation by the shock wave are obtained. Numerical simulations with the computer code RAPID are in a good agreement with analytical results.
