Modeling of Laser-Matter interaction – LaserMode

Modeling of Laser-Matter interaction – LaserModeresponsible T. Itina

The development of laser technologies requires a higher understanding of the intrinsic excitation and phase-transformation mechanisms in various classes of materials including metals, semiconductors, and dielectrics. The project focuses on developing multiscale approaches (atomistic, mesoscopic, hydrodynamic, kinetic) and combined models for simulating the interaction of matter and the laser radiation with the purpose of further understanding and advancing laser structuring processes. The specific interest is in evaluation the response of optical components to laser radiation, laser structuring, and laser-based nanotechnologies.

Current highlights:

  • Generation of nanoscale particulates in ablation products.

  • Role of shockwave generation for damping ablation rates in multipulse laser irradiation.
