There could be a far better means, yet one remedy could be to Applescript it. I have not yet located any kind of means to run an applescript after a backup, yet you can:

1. Turn off automated TM backup
2. Set up an applescript to run TM
• Some googling showed up this line to compel a prompt TM construct : do shell script "/System/Library/CoreServices/backupd.bundle/Contents/Resources/backupd-helper >/dev/null 2>&1 &"
3. Add a line to eject the disk after that.
• eject disk somedrivename

If you desire this to take place often, you can attach it to a cron work.
