This paper presents a unified thermal model, which can describe the thermophysical effects with laser pulse width ranges from nanosecond to femtosecond. Take gold target as an example, the numerical solutions are obtained from the unified model using a finite difference method. The temperature distribution of the electron and the lattice along with space and time at a certain laser fluence is presented. The time-dependence of lattice and electron temperature on the surface for different laser fluence is also performed. The satisfactory agreement between our numerical results and experimental results of vaporization threshold indicates that the unified thermal model is correct and reasonable.
