Abstract

We measured the depth profile of hydrogen atoms in graphite by laser microprobing combined with resonant laser ablation. Deuterium-implanted graphite was employed for the measurements. The sample was ablated by a tunable laser with a wavelength corresponding to the resonant wavelength of 1S–2S of deuterium with two-photon excitation. The ablated deuterium was ionized by a 2 + 1 resonant ionization process. The ions were analyzed by a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The deuterium ions were detected clearly with the resonant ablation. The detection limit was estimated to be less than 1016 atoms/cm3 in our experiments. We determined the depth profile by considering the etching profile and the etching rate. The depth profile agreed well with Monte Carlo simulations to within a precision of 23 µm for the center position and 4-µm precision for distributions for three different implantation depths.
