Nanogratings Formation in a System of Ultra-short Laser Pulses – Metalloorganic Gas – Deposited Metal – Sapphire in Sinergetic Interference Field with Waveguide Modes Participation
Experimental results of laser-induced deposition of structured metal films from metalloorganic vapor have been analyzed. A new physical model has been put forward to explain the results. The model is based on the interference phenomena between the incident laser radiation and waveguide modes of a thermally induced gradient waveguide in the substrate.
Keywords: femtosecond radiation, metal deposition, interference, waveguide modes, surface nanogratings.
