The density and the size of particulates in films laser-deposited at room temperature using various target materials were observed to depend strongly on the target material and the laser power density. However, loose universal relations between the deposition rates and the particulate density as well as the particulate size were found, where the latter corresponds approximately to the ratio of the laser power density to the ablation threshold. Furthermore, particulates consisting of only some of the target elements such as CuOx were found. Additionally, an acceptably high deposition rate was obtained by using halide and sulfide targets. These materials offer a possibility of deposition using a low power laser.
