The University of Birmingham

United Kingdom

Time of flight measurement of femtosecond ablation of graphite

Christophe Huchon

Attosecond meeting, 7 december 2005, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory


Christophe huchon

Motivation: mechanism(s) in femtosecond laser ablation ?

TOF

Products ONLY

from surface ?

TOF

Products from

surface + fragmentation ?

Thermal (equilibrium)

or/and

coulomb explosion (non equilibrium)?

Principle of TOF spectrometer

 Ions desorbed from surface: if D >> s


Christophe huchon

Model used for ablation process


Christophe huchon

pulse= 100 fs

Epulse= 200 J

Usample= 500 V

Ratio ≈ 11


Christophe huchon

pulse= 100 fs

Epulse= 10.5 J

Usample= 405 V


Christophe huchon

KE distribution spread as a function of the voltage

pulse= 100 fs

Epulse= 10.5 J


Christophe huchon

Summary

  • fragmentation process involved in the ablation of the graphite with femtosecond laser pulse.

  • need to find what is the rate thermal vaporization / Coulomb explosion  VUV probe

  • VUV, XUV will allow time-resolved photoelectron emission
