Abstract
Sub-wavelength (1/4*λ-3/4*λ) laser induced periodic surface structures are generated by irradiation of either bulk fused silica and silicon or Er:BaTiO3 thin films by scanning a tightly focused beam (Θ = 1 μm) of femtosecond laser radiation (λ = 800 nm, tp = 100 fs) on the surface. The ripple pattern extends coherently over many overlapping laser pulses parallel and perpendicular to the polarization of the laser radiation. The dependence of the ripple spacing on the spacing of successive pulses, the direction of polarization and the properties of the material is investigated. The evolution of the ripples is investigated by applying pulse bursts with 1 - 20 pulses. The development conditions of the stuctures are specified and possible mechanisms of ripple growth are discussed.
