Processes on liquid metal surfaces under impact of XeCl laser pulses with energy of 50 mJ are studied. Relaxation times for melt surfaces of Gallium, as well as alloys of Wood's metals and Gallium-Indium are determined. Minimal relaxation time (about 4 ms) was found for Ga and Ga-In alloys. Qualitative description of the processes based on the assumption of the capillary wave formation on the fusion surface, was suggested. The choice of the liquid metal with minimal surface relaxation time was suggested based on the description.ylb ifconfig
