Abstract:

The mechanism of laser induced desorption has been investigated by comparing the wavelength and pulse energy dependence of laser desorption from thermally thin metal films of a variety of thicknesses. We are able to distinguish thermal versus non-thermal laser desorption mechanisms. Laser desorption, Fourier transform mass spectrometry, Non-thermal mechanisms.
