Boosted Spontaneous Formation of High‐Aspect Ratio Nanopeaks on Ultrafast Laser‐Irradiated Ni Surface

Abstract : The capacity to synthesize and design highly intricated nanoscale objects of different sizes, surfaces, and shapes dramatically conditions the development of multifunctional nanomaterials. Ultrafast laser technology holds great promise as a contactless process able to rationally and rapidly manufacture complex nanostructures bringing innovative surface functions. The most critical challenge in controlling the growth of laser-induced structures below the light diffraction limit is the absence of external order associated to the inherent local interaction due to the self-organizing nature of the phenomenon. Here high aspect-ratio nanopatterns driven by near-field surface coupling and architectured by timely-controlled polarization pulse shaping are reported. Electromagnetic coupled with hydrodynamic simulations reveal why this unique optical manipulation allows peaks generation by inhomogeneous local absorption sustained by nanoscale convection. The obtained high aspect-ratio surface nanotopography is expected to prevent bacterial proliferation, and have great potential for catalysis, vacuum to deep UV photonics and sensing.
