Hydrodynamic Modeling of Laser Ablation

  • R.C. Mancini (a1)


We present a hydrodynamic model to simulate laser ablation. The model conisistently takes into account the main physical phenomena involved in laser ablation: heating, thermal conduction, hydrodynamics and atomic kinetics. It computes the ionization balance, plasma formation and expansion, and the attenuation of the laser light as it travels through the plasma. Preliminary results are presented.
