Paper Abstract

We report the synthesis of surface nitrides by multipulse XeC1 exciTaer laser irradiation in ambient NH3 atmosphere of metal (Ti Mo) and semiconductor (Si Ge) samples. The amount of nitride formed was shown to depend under various extents on the kind of sample the incident laser fluence and the number of subsequent laser pulses. The nitridation process is very sensitive to the oxygen presence. It was evidenced that only traces of oxygen were sufficient for promoting the formation of oxides and oxynitrides. 1.
