Research Highlight

Time-gated optical plume images in dual-laser ablation invented at USF Physics
Time-gated images of a Type-I clathrate material (Ba8Ga16Ge30) ablated by the dual-laser ablation process invented by Drs. Mukherjee and Witanachchi at LAMSAT in the Physics Department at USF.  This patented thin film deposition process uses temporally synchronized and spatially overlapped excimer and CO2 laser pulses to deposit large-area, stoichiometric, defect-free films of multi-component materials.  The images show the effect of inter-pulse delay in this process.
