This disclosure provides systems, methods, and apparatus related to deposition techniques using laser ablation. In one aspect, an optical fiber and target of a material to be deposited on a first region of an interior surface of a hollow component are positioned in the hollow component. A first end of the optical fiber is coupled to a laser system. A second end of the optical fiber is proximate the target. The material is deposited on the first region of the interior surface of the hollow component by directing a first laser pulse from the laser system through the optical fiber to impinge on the target.
