Nanosecond laser ablation of titanium in air has been studied experimentally. The measured ablation depth at different pulse numbers indicates an incubation effect for the first ∼10 pulses. Compared with steel, the experiments show a larger plasma plume size and lower plume ignition threshold for titanium. The experimental measurements provide very useful information for the further study and practical applications of laser titanium micromachining.
