    Abstract

    The laser cleaning of alumina particles on glass and silica substrates was discussed. It was found that the threshold fluence for particle removal of silica was approximately eight times higher than that for microscope slides, when so prepared. The analysis suggested the threshold fluence for silica was about 15 times greater that for glass.
