Title: Laser-induced structure formation on stretched polymer foils

Abstract

Noncoherent structures that develop during UV laser ablation of stretched semicrystalline polymer foils are a very general phenomenon. A thermodynamic model based on stress relaxation within the modified layer of the polymer surface describes the main features of the observed phenomena, and, in particular, the dependence of the period of structures on laser wavelength, fluence, and number of laser pulses.

  • Formation of self-induced gratings on a metal surface scanned by a focused femtosecond laser beam has been investigated. It is experimentally shown that application of femtosecond IR radiation allows one to form more ordered self-induced gratings as compared with the gratings formed by visible light. The dependence of the tilt of grating lines with respect to the beam polarisation direction on the distance between tracks and the beam motion direction in adjacent tracks is analysed. Formation of two-dimensional periodic gratings during double laser beam passage along the same trajectory but with a small difference in the beam polarisation directions hasmore » been found for the first time.

  • A theoretical description of laser-induced acoustic phonons in poly(p-phenylenevinylene) uniaxially stretched films considering the dependence of the acoustic wave on the polarization, propogation direction, and laser pulse width yields the complete elastic modulus tenor including both the longitudinal and shear components. The theoretical description in this paper also provides an explanation for a novel mode-jump behavior. 25 refs., 3 figs.
  • The occurrence of anomalous viscosity behavior of dilute polymer solutions, indicated by increases in shear stress with time at constant shear rate, have been investigated in a cone and plate viscometer. The ionic strengths of the solutions influence the kinetics of increases whereas the presence of small amounts of detergent abolishes the effect. The results are interpreted by assuming the shear-induced development of a structural network of the polymer solute at the air-water interface. (29 refs.)
  • We have measured modulations imprinted by laser speckle in laser-driven CH{sub 2} foils at 10{sup 14} W/cm{sup 2} (laser wavelength 0.53 {mu}m). We have calibrated the amplitude and Rayleigh-Taylor growth of these modulations with single-mode surface perturbations, converting the imprint to an equivalent surface finish. We examined this imprint for a static speckle pattern and with two different bandwidths on the drive laser. The addition of bandwidth and dispersion to the drive laser reduced the imprinted modulations, with the highest bandwidth showing the largest reduction in imprint, in agreement with LASNEX simulations. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
