Title: Heating rate dependent ignition of Al/Pt nanolaminates through pulsed laser irradiation

Abstract

Direct laser irradiation of sputter deposited Al/Pt nanolaminate multilayers results in rapid local heating and exothermic mixing of reactant layers. Milli- and microsecond pulsed laser irradiation under certain test conditions leads to single-point ignition of rapid, self-propagating, formation reactions. Multilayers having bilayer thicknesses of 328 nm, 164 nm, and 65 nm are characterized by their ignition onset times and temperatures. Smaller bilayer thickness multilayers require less laser intensity for ignition compared with larger bilayer designs (when utilizing a particular pulse duration). The relationship between laser intensity and ignition onset time is used to calibrate an activation energy for ignition within a finite element reactive heat transport model. The local heating rate is varied from 104 K/s to 106 K/s by selecting a laser intensity. Kissinger analysis was performed on the heating rate-dependent ignition temperatures measured with high speed pyrometry to experimentally determine an activation energy in the foils of (6.2 ± 1.6 × 104 J/mole atoms). Furthermore, this value is then compared to an activation energy produced from model fits to an ignition onset time of 7.2 × 104 J/mole atoms.

A thermal circuit model for calculating the foil thermal conductivity, k, in the longitudinal and transverse directions is shown schematically on the left. Individual material layer widths are not drawn to scale. Within the simulation, s(0) = 10 nm to account for the premixing in the as deposited nanolaminate.« less
