Cavity‐enhanced detection of surface photovaporization Academic Article uri icon


  • Cavity-enhanced detection is used to monitor minute vapor plumes produced by focusing a pulsed laser beam onto a surface placed inside a resonant optical cavity. The photovaporization signals from a variety of different materials are examined, with emphasis being placed on their amplitude and temporal structure.
