Application of a two-temperature model for the investigation of the periodic structure formation on Si surface in femtosecond laser interactions

Abstract : We consider the case of surface irradiation by a small number of femtosecond laser shots leading to the formation of surface ripples. To explain this effect, we propose a numerical model that accounts for the following processes: (i) interference of the laser irradiation with an electromagnetic surface wave propagating on a silicon sample; (ii) free carrier formation and laser energy absorption; (iii) energy relaxation and electron-phonon coupling. We perform numerical calculations taking into account the interference of a surface wave with laser; and present the obtained simulation results in order to explain formation mechanisms of the experimentally observed patterns
