We demonstrate a new technique for measuring the desorption products as a function of time during ultrafast laser-induced desorption. Measurements of the evaporation of Ga atoms and desorption of surface oxides from picosecond laser-heated GaAs are presented.

    Desorption of an adatom from a solid surface through vibrational excitation by an IR laser is studied using a generalized master equation approach and the isomnesic approximation. A sharp transition from no desorption to almost instantaneous desorption is seen as the bound-to-continuum...

    We have experimentally studied femtosecond laser induced desorption of polyatomic molecules (NH[sub 3], ND[sub 3]) from Pt (111), as a function of laser fluence and laser pulse duration (FWHM) from 120 fs to 1.0 ps. We found that the desorption yield does not depend on pulse width, in contrast...

    The process of desorption for the system of O2/Pd(111) under excitation by 100 fs pulses of visible light has been examined. Molecular desorption is found to occur with high efficiency and a nonlinear dependence on laser fluence. Direct time-domain measurements using a two-pulse correlation...
