A numerical solution of the two-temperature model has been performed up to the shaped femtosecond pulse sequences heated metal target. The two-temperature model is used to analyze the shaped femtosecond pulse sequences with the following major conclusions. We confirm the distinctly different results on the different shaped femtosecond pulse sequences. As the number of shaped femtosecond pulses increases, the nonequilibrium state between electrons and phonons gradually disappears, the highest transient electron temperature is lowered and the thermolization time is prolonged, the electron heat conductivity remains higher because of the effect of incubation on the electron temperature, which preserves the advantages of ultrashort lasers. The shaped femtosecond pulse sequences can increase the efficiency in ablation and micromachining.
