Abstract: A layer-by-layer analysis of metals and alloys has been carried out, and the possibility of deposition of nanofilms containing tin in their composition on various types of surfaces (metal, glass) under the action of dual laser pulses on a target in an air atmosphere has been studied. The experiments were carried out using the laser two-pulse multichannel atomic emission spectrometer LSS-1. The advantages of the pulsed laser deposition as a method for producing clusters and fractals are: versatility in relation to the material, the ability to exclude impurities, the flexibility of the method, and the ability of controlling the formation of film structures. The performed spectroscopic studies of the laser plasma formed by the action of two successive pulses on a target illustrate the development of methods for obtaining nanoclusters of various chemical elements. This method can be used to obtain nanofilms of not only pure metals, but also composite alloys. The possibility of obtaining nanofilms for creating gas-sensitive sensors is shown.

Keywords: double laser pulses, laser plasma, layer-by-layer analysis, deposition of thin films, nanopowder technologies, multichannel atomic emission spectrometry
