Title: Apparatus and methods for deposition of materials on interior surfaces of hollow components

Abstract

This disclosure provides systems, methods, and apparatus related to deposition techniques using laser ablation. In one aspect, an optical fiber and target of a material to be deposited on a first region of an interior surface of a hollow component are positioned in the hollow component. A first end of the optical fiber is coupled to a laser system. A second end of the optical fiber is proximate the target. The material is deposited on the first region of the interior surface of the hollow component by directing a first laser pulse from the laser system through the optical fiber to impinge on the target.
