In this work, laser ablation-induced crystallization of a single-component system was demonstrated using a melt of glacial acetic acid. We systematically investigated the dependence of the crystallization probability on laser energy, pulse duration, and beam profile. We also monitored other laser ablation-induced phenomena, cavitation bubble generation, and temperature elevation, which also depend on those laser parameters. We found that the tendency of crystallization probability can be qualitatively interpreted by the interplay between positive (size of cavitation bubble) and negative (temperature elevation) factors, which provides fundamental insights into the underlying mechanism of laser ablation-induced crystallization.
