Paper Abstract

Excimer lasers are finding increasing use in the area of laser materials processing. Of particular importance is the fact that excimers can remove material through ablation rather than by any purely thermal mechanism such as those associated with YAG or CO2 processing. This paper reviews briefly the basic mechanisms associated with excimer laser ablation and presents several examples of practical applications of this new technique.
