The mechanical behavior of thin films subjected to laser irradiation is described by a dynamical model that is based on coupled evolution equations for the deformation and vacancy density fields. Lattice vacancies are generated in a thin layer as a result of shallow absorption of electromagnetic laser radiation. The strain field associated with lattice… CONTINUE READING
