14.For this particular case only 8% of the laser energy is adsorbed. Of this 8%, by the end of the pulse 52% goes into increasing the temperature, 40% into the expansion energy and less than 8% into thermal conductivity losses. In the case of much stronger heating (i.e., ), thermal conductivity losses play a much more important role.
