When we discuss the concept of laser-induced phenomena, we refer to several different processes such as laser ablation, optical breakdown, laser pyrolysis, and laser-induced reduction reactions. In our recent study, we discovered a new phenomenon, which can be called “laser-inspired chemical transformations”.

I would like to thank and acknowledge my colleagues, all bright scientists, who contributed to the success of our research: the people from the group of from Professor Tunik’s laboratory, the people from Research Centers of St. Petersburg State University: Nanocenter and Optical Center of Laser and Materials Research, and also the people from Max Plank Institute for the Science of Light and from Friedrich-Alexander University of Nuremberg. If it were not for the support from Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, Project 14.604.21.0078, the experiments would not have succeeded.
