Abstract
Thin metal films (Cu, Au, Ni) and thin Si films with different thicknesses on fused silica were irradiated with a ns-pulse from a Nd:YAG-laser (lambda equals 532 nm, FWHM 7 ns). In this paper we want to focus on the optical properties of an undercooled metallic liquid and the observed dewetting of the thin films. The ongoing processes were monitored in situ with ns- time-resolved reflectivity measurements. We determined the thresholds for partial and compete melting of these films. Due to the high cooling rates (up to 1011 K/s) different 'frozen' stages of the dewetting phenomenon can be studied in detail with ex situ microscopic investigations, e.g. optical microscopy and scanning near field acoustic microscopy. We present measurements which show that we have observed spinodal dewetting of these thin films.
