Paper Abstract

The laser ablation is one of the best ways to obtain smooth thin film deposited on various substrates. However, to obtain a 'droplets-free' surface some special experimental setups are necessary.ONe of them is the 'eclipse' method, using a plane shadow mask. Based on studies on the plume behavior in a 'standard' deposition and in a plane shadow mask eclipse deposition, we prose a new shadow mask having a an helicoidal shape, which permit to obtain a abetter film quality - maximum droplets size about 10 times smaller than for the plane shadow mask. The plume behavior and thin film quality are presented and discussed.
