Thermal diffusion effect on the relaxation rate of induced optical response of metal films of varying thickness excited by ultrashort laser pulses

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this study the effect of thermal diffusion on the establishment of equilibrium of metal electrons with the lattice under irradiation of metal films of varying thickness of ultrashort laser pulses. Calculations are made of the relaxation time of the induced optical response as a function of film thickness.
