Abstract

The use of nanoenergetic materials for the near field-infrared (IR) laser ablation of teflon (poly tetrafluoroethylene) was analyzed. Investigation shows the use of a vacuum-ultraviolet laser for the ablation of teflon. It was found that teflon was decomposed by the spherical shock fronts which originated at the irradiated nanoparticles. It was concluded that the laser ablation process was optimized by dispersing the teflon sixe-selected Al nanoparticels in the near-field IR.
