Paper Abstract

Laser ablation of iron by femtosecond and picosecond pulses is investigated using molecular dynamics (MD). The electron heat conduction is taken into account in the simulations. Several stages of the ejection of the particles is determined. The compression and the subsequent relaxation of the pressure into the bulk lead to removal of large amount of the material. These processes are also accompanied with the formation of voids in the material. Two different regimes of the ablation are observed depending on the laser fluence. The estimated threshold of ablation is in good agreement with the experimental data found in the literature. The dynamics of the shock wave and the temperature distribution in the material are also obtained.
