Paper Abstract

The chemical vapor deposition of metals induced by continuous laser irradiation of a substrate is modeled. The transient heat conduction problem is solved in the solid substrate, while the gas phase heat and mass transfer processes are assumed to be in a quasi-steady state. Temperature dependent parameters are used and irregularly shaped deposits are considered. Volcano-like deposition profiles are found to occur under certain conditions of gas pressure and laser intensity. The model predictions show that depletion effects and adsorption-desorption phenomena are major factors in the occurrence of volcano-like deposits.
