Paper Abstract

This paper discusses three divergent examples of synthesis of materials with lasers. The three techniques are: (1) Infrared (CO2) laser synthesis of silane (SiH4) from disilane (Si2H6); (2) Excimer (ArF) laser production of fine silicon powders from methyl-and chlorosubstituted silanes; and, (3) Excimer (KrF) laser production of fine metallic powders by laser ablation. The mechanism for each process is discussed along with some conclusions about the features of the laser radiation that enable each application.
