Matrix-Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation Direct-Write was investigated by ultra high-speed optical microscopy. A layer of viscous fluid was irradiated with 355nm, 30 ns laser pulses in a laser-forward transfer configuration. The fluid response as a function of fluence was studied, and several distinct regimes of behavior were observed: plume, jetting and sub-threshold. However, the transition between plume and jetting regimes was not readily evident in a study of transfer pixel area vs. fluence, which may be explained by material-substrate interactions.
