The ablation of various substances under the action of submillimeter radiation of the free electron laser (FEL) developed and built at Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics were carried out at the Chemical and Biological user station of the Siberian Center for Photochemical Research. It was shown that ablation can be nondestructive. We have classified the aerosol products of ablation of the following substances: crustal minerals, fullerene-like complexes based on molybdenum; polymers of vinylimidazole with different molecular masses and biological macromolecules. The most impressive results are obtained under ablation of biological macromolecules.
