Abstract

The investigation of the threshold behavior in laser ablation by using constant temperature and pressure molecular dynamics simulations was discussed. It was found that there was a well defined fluence at which proper conditions for the phase transition could be attained when the laser fluence increases in ablation. The simulations suggest a computational pathway for exploring the microscopic nature of the homogeneous nucleation. The rate of nucleation in a narrow temperature range at approximately 90% of the critical temperature was found to increase sharply.
