Laser induced nanostructure formation

The removal of material by intense, pulsed laser irradiation is termed laser ablation or photoablation. Understanding the complex phenomena of this process, it can be utilized for the controlled micro- and nanopatterning of material surfaces. The ablation dynamics of metals, semiconductors, and dielectrica and the corresponding structure formation on the nanometer-scale are investigated. In addition to laser ablation, various processes of laser induced material modification are possible. Examples are chemical modification, laser induced material transfer or implantation. The laser induced formation of plasmonic nanoparticles and light-emitting nanocrystals are treated as well.
