8.1 Introduction

The key components to successful LIFT implementation are (i) the removal of the donor from the carrier (the released donor often being referred to as a “flyer”) and (ii) the capture of the flyer by the receiver. As there are an extremely wide range of experimental parameters, for both the laser (pulse energy, pulse length, wavelength, beam size, etc.) and the material (type, thickness, etc.), the process of optimization can often be time-consuming. Typically, for a chosen material, a range ...
