The mechanisms of laser ablation of materials under the interaction of powerful pulsed laser radiation with a material coated with a thin film system were studied. One of the first models of such interaction of high-power laser radiation with matter was the thermal model. A onetemperature thermal model was used when considering the interaction of laser radiation with dielectrics, and a two-temperature model was used when considering the interaction of laser radiation with metals. When studying the processes of laser ablation within the framework of the thermal model, the method of moments with a special selection of the test function was chosen. Computer simulation was conducted to study the dependence of the surface temperature and the characteristic thermal length on the radiant flux. Variants with both constant and variable optophysical characteristics of the phenomenon were considered. Calculations were performed for different time ranges under different initial conditions. The results of the numerical experiment agree well with the data of other authors.
