Thin Metal films have been deposited by a multiphoton ionization technique. Laser-initiated semi-conduct thin-film growth has been demonstrated and laser irradiation of the substrate has produced higher quality films than that obtained by growth without the laser. Also, laser induced breakdown LIB has been shown to be a highly sensitive technique for detecting minute impurities. In addition, a significant improvement in XeCl laser energy output has been realized by the injection of a low intensity UV laser pulse into the XeCl laser cavity.
