Title: Hydrodynamic efficiency of laser-induced transfer of matter

Abstract

A one-dimensional analytic hydrodynamic model of the direct laser-induced transfer of matter is considered. The efficiency of pulsed laser radiation energy conversion to the kinetic energy of the ejected matter is determined. It is shown that the hydrodynamic efficiency of the process for the layers of matter of thickness exceeding the laser radiation absorption depth is determined by the adiabatic index of the evaporated matter.

  • In laser shock peening (LSP) under a water-confinement regime, laser-matter interaction near the coating-water interface can induce very high pressures in the order of gigapascals, which can impart compressive residual stresses into metal workpieces to improve fatigue and corrosion properties. For axisymmetric laser spots with finite size, the pressure generation near the water-coating interface is a two dimensional process in nature. This is in particular the case for microscale LSP performed with very small laser spots, which is a very promising technique to improve the reliability performance of microdevices. However, models capable of predicting two dimensional (2D) spatial distributions ofmore » the induced pressures near the coating-water interface in LSP have rarely been reported in literature. In this paper, a predictive 2D axisymmetric model is developed by numerically solving the hydrodynamic equations, supplemented with appropriate equations of state of water and the coating material. The model can produce 2D spatial distributions of material responses near the water-coating interface in LSP, and is verified through comparisons with experimental measurements. The model calculation shows that the effect of radial release wave on pressure spatial distributions becomes more significant as the laser spot size decreases, indicating the importance of a 2D model, particularly for microscale LSP.« less
  • In an experiment performed at the Kal'mar larser installation, the transfer of kinetic energy between the outer and inner shell of a laser target was studied. (AIP)
  • We have found that numerical simulation and experiment both show laser-imploded spherical glass shells to expand in two successive pulses: The first corresponds to the ablated material, while the second corresponds to the compressed material. The relative speeds and intensities of the two pulses indicate the efficiency of transferring absorbed laser energy to the compressed core. (AIP)
  • A remote Doppler velocimeter with extensive functional capabilities was constructed on the basis of a monolithic single-frequency ring Nd{sup 3+} : YAG laser pumped by a laser diode. This velocimeter was used to investigate laser-induced hydrodynamic flows in condensed media. (laser applications and other topics in quantum electronics)
