PLD is the key to manufacturing non-traditional materials

The excimer laser can be used as a means of vaporizing target material inside a vacuum chamber and depositing it on a substrate. The pulsed laser deposition process has several advantages over conventional processes including; 
- A wide variety of targets can be used; metals, ceramics and oxides
- Independent control on the deposition temperature and the background pressure (O2, He2, N2...)
- The resulting thin film has the same stochiometry (ratio of elements) as the target
- Novel coatings such as diamond films can be produced
