The angular distribution of laser ablated silver has been measured in situ with a newly constructed setup with an array of microbalances. The distribution is strongly peaked in the forward direction corresponding to cospθ, where p varies between 5 and 9 for laser fluences from 2 to 7 J/cm2 at 355 nm for a beam spot of 0.015 cm2. The total deposited yield is of the order 1015 Ag-atoms per pulse.
