A novel technique for the laser-induced forward transfer (LIFT) of material in solid phase from a thin film precursor is presented. Multiple, sub-threshold energy femtosecond pulses are used to lessen the adhesion of a donor film to a support substrate to facilitate forward transfer of solid 'pellets' of donor material to a receiver. A relatively higher(More)
The effects of the formation of an optical standing wave during femtosecond laser-induced forward transfer of transparent films is analyzed using a numerical interference model. The dependence of the intensity distribution on a number of easily controllable experimental parameters is investigated. Results of the model are compared to experimental studies of(More)
