The present work is motivated by the numerous applications of short lasers–ceramics interaction. It aims at applying a newly developed model to investigate the dynamic of laser-induced plasmas from a ceramic material into a helium gas under atmospheric pressure. To have a better understanding of the link between the material properties, the plume characteristics and its interaction with the laser beam, a thorough examination of the entire ablation processes is conducted. Comparison with the behavior of laser-induced plumes under the same conditions from a pure material is shown to have a key role in shedding the light on what monitors the plume expansion in the background environment. Plume temperatures, velocities, ionization rates as well as elemental composition have been presented and compared under carefully chosen relevant conditions. This study is of interest for laser matter applications depending on the induced plasmas dynamics and composition.
