Abstract

Laser-materials interaction is the fascinating nexus where laser physics, optical physics, and materials science intersect. Applications include microdeposition via laser-induced forward transfer of thin films, clean materials processing with femtosecond beams, creating color filters with nanoparticles, generating very high density storage sites on subpicosecond time scales, structuring solar cell surfaces for higher efficiency, making nanostructures that would be impossible by other means, and creating in-volume waveguiding structures using femtosecond laser filaments.
