The lateral growth rates observed during the Kr+ laser-induced deposition of W spots from gaseous mixtures of WF6 and H2 have been analyzed on the basis of model calculations for pyrolytic laser-CVD. The apparent chemical activation energies derived for substrates of fused quartz (a-SiO2) covered either with 700 Å of sputtered W or with 1200 Å of amorphous Si (a-Si) are 30 and 40 kcal/mol, respectively.
