Abstract: A study of formation of mixed Al nanopowders, copper and aluminum oxides, and precursors for production of CuAlO2 and CuAl2O4 nanoceramics under the influence of double laser pulses with energy of 53 mJ and the interpulse interval of 10 microseconds on a target consisting of plates of aluminum grade AD1 and copper grade M2, 0,4 mm thick, glued together and placed in a closed rectangular glass cuvette. It is found that the successive exposure of a series of double laser beams to an aluminum target and then to a copper target leads to a multiple increase in the yield of AlO suboxides, aluminum and copper ions and atoms in the laser torch, compared with the exposure to single laser pulses. To better understand the hidden mechanisms of this dependence, we study the processes occurring both on the surface and in the near-surface laser plasma inside the resulting microchannel when the target is broken by a series of single and double laser pulses. The possibility of obtaining precursors for the production of nanoceramics such as CuAlO2, CuAl2O4 is shown.
