Article history: In order to study the effect of liquid properties on laser ablation in liquids, aluminum 5A06 and titanium Received 10 July 2015 TB5 targets were irradiated by single-pulse infrared laser in isopropanol, distilled water, glycerin and as Received in revised form 13 October 2015 a comparison, in air, respectively. Craters induced by laser ablation were characterized using scanning Accepted 8 November 2015 electron and white-light interferometric microscopies. The results show that for liquid-mediated abla- Available online 14 November 2015 tion, craters with porous surface structures were formed in aluminum target through phase explosion, while no micro-cavities were formed in titanium target owing to high critical temperature of titanium.
