Time‐resolved reflectivity as a probe of the dynamics of laser ablation of organic polymers
The interaction of KrF excimer laser pulses with polyimide, poly(ethylene terephthalate), polystyrene, poly(methyl methacrylate), and polyethylene has been studied by time‐resolved reflectivity. TheExpand

The pressure dependence of the rate constant of the reaction of OD radicals with CO
Abstract A kinetic study of the reaction OD + CO + M at 298 K, with M = He, N 2 , CF 4 or SF 6 in the pressure range 20–650 Torr is presented. OD radicals were generated by flash-photolysis of D 2 OExpand

Rates and mechanism of the reactions of hydroxyl radicals with acetic, deuterated acetic, and propionic acids in the gas phase
Rate constants for the reactions of hydroxyl radicals with the monomer and dimer of acetic acid, deuterated acetic acids, and propionic acid have been determined by a laser photolysis-resonanceExpand

XeCl laser ablation of polyimide: Influence of ambient atmosphere on particulate and gaseous products
The gaseous and particulate products of the XeCl (308 nm) laser ablation of polyimide (Kapton H) are quantitatively determined and compared with the mass loss of the polymer in atmospheres of He, N2,Expand

The effect of debris formation on the morphology of excimer laser ablated polymers
A study of the distribution of the debris formed by the XeCl laser ablation of polyimide and polyethylene terephthalate and the KrCl laser ablation of polyimide shows that it is the redeposition ofExpand

Excimer lasers in cardiovascular surgery: Ablation products and photoacoustic spectrum of the arterial wall
Photoacoustic spectra of normal artery wall and of atherosclerotic plaque are reported. Threshold fluences for ablative formation of gaseous products for each excimer laser line were calculated fromExpand

The pressure dependence of the rate constant of the reaction of OH radicals with CO
Absolute rate constants for the reaction OH+CO+M have been determined in the gas phase, at 298 K, in the pressure range 20–700 Torr of He, N2, CF4, and SF6 and 0–20 Torr of H2O. Hydroxyl radicalsExpand
