Paper Abstract

We made a Monte Carlo simulation of the elastic interaction of ablated atoms with ambient gas molecules. Varying the initial energy of ablated atoms, the simulations were performed for different values of the ambient gas pressure in the range of 0.1-100 Pa and/or for values of target collector distance between 3-7 cm. The results concern the Ti ablated atoms transit in methane. Calculating the energy of the atoms when they reach the collector we determine the condition for plume splitting occurrence.
