Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to analyse nanosecond pulsed laser ablation on both metallic materials and non-metallic materials; a comparison between metallic materials and non-metallic materials has also been included. Design/methodology/approach: In this paper, FEM method has been used to calculate the result by means of the finite element method. Furthermore, all the analyses are based on thermal theories. Findings: The paper presents a comparison of metallic and non-metallic materials. Besides, the effect of how laser parameter changes would influence the ablation depth has also been assessed. Research limitations/implications: All studies in this paper are based on classical thermal theories. Thermal theories are not applicable some times. Originality/value: With the results of this paper, suggestions are made so that experiments and manufactures could be optimised and improved.
