Nondimensional base input magnitude [U.sub.mag] = 10 and pulse length [T.sub.p] = T.
Therefore, it is assumed that pulse length and resulting temporal plasma properties during pulse-on-time, like ion-to-neutral ratio and metal ion energy, are the most influencing parameters.

Of course, R([tau]) depends on the bandwidth b, on the pulse length T, and on the rms phase fluctuation [sigma].
The morphological changes induced by picosecond laser on the stainless steel 304 target primarily have shown their dependence on the laser fluence and the number of accumulated pulses, and they are also affected by other factors, such as laser beam characteristics (wavelength, pulse length) and laser irradiation environment (in air atmosphere or in vacuum).
The NIF laser packs more energy overall, but since peak power is a function of both average power and pulse length, BELLA took the crown with shorter pulses lasting just 40 quadrillionths of a second.
The terms "short pulse" and "ultrashort pulse" are a bit general--typically 200 picoseconds down to femtosecond level durations--but when the pulse length becomes this short, material removal becomes a function of vaporization or sublimation rather than absorption.

The higher frequency system inherently is the most accurate due to a narrow beam width, shorter pulse length and wavelength provided.
