Abstract

We present the possibility of using femtosecond laser-generated shock waves to effect a new kind of material transformation, a coherent dissociation of a material into two slabs. Coherent dissociation is fundamentally different from fracture. Every atom at the interface would react synchronously, which would greatly enhance our ability to understand fundamental mechanisms and to identify and characterize transition states.
