Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Laser-induced chemical reactions on solid surfaces are investigated. The close relationship between the reaction rate and induction period is shown. Using a simple mathematical technique based on no thermal exchange during the reaction and applying a point-system description, it is demonstrated that the inverse dependence of the induction period on rate constants can be shortened by the use of external laser radiation.
