This section is dedicated to the use of lasers for material* processing.

I present a synthesis of the scientific knowledge related to laser-matter interaction, and to the effects of laser light on materials in terms of chemical and structural transformations. I propose a new scheme that relies on the new concept of photoionization mode. This new scheme is the basis of a phenomenological model (I am working on it) that covers a wide range of laser-matter interaction regimes, and which constitutes a valuable tool for scientists and engineers for designing new applications. I also propose new applications in semiconductors and microelectronics, biology, and medicine.

A fundamental requirement for the existence of a tool is the control of all phenomena that govern its functioning. The result of my work is a body of knowledge that enables one to control the spatial distribution of the dose induced by laser pulses, and the relative yields of primary species, by controlling the properties of the laser beam. The dose distribution can be conveniently shaped by inducing a superposition of four modes of ionization, each having specific characteristics: 
The mixed ionization modes are: SP-OB, SP-B/OB, and F-OB. 

This work opens the possibility for a new kind of high-power sub-ps laser applications in material processing, based on secondary effects induced by photoionization and photodissociation (PATENT). The understanding of these new applications is rooted in radiation science, which provides an understanding of the effects induced on the host material of new highly reactive species generated through photoionization and photodissociation. Most of the discussions assume that the host material is water, and focuses on biological applications.

The term material refers to any category:  ordered or amorphous, liquid, gas or solid, biological or non-biological. The term processing refers to any transformation induced to the material. A transformation, be it permanent or temporary, ultimately reduces to chemical and structural transformations, or to a modification of the form (shape).
