Title: Tracking of buried layers during plasma-assisted femtosecond laser drilling of compound targets

Abstract

It was shown that drilling of multi-layered target placed in the air by tightly focused femtosecond laser radiation with high fluence (up to 1000 J/cm{sup 2}) can be monitored online using plasma-induced X-ray emission and second harmonic of incident laser radiation. The technique based on X-rays registration is appeared to be more flexible than the method based on detection of second harmonic since its accuracy depends crucially on the target type. We demonstrated that the X-ray signal clearly indicates the transition from one layer to another during the microdrilling of targets consisting of 2–4 layers of titanium foil when a laser beam is focused beneath the target surface at a depth comparable to the layer thickness. The diagnostics of microchannel production in the chicken eggshell was performed for the first time. It was found that the presence of albumen beneath the shell accounts for longtime generation of X-ray pulses.

  • Principles of the femtosecond fabrication of the optoelectronic components in glass are explained and illustrated by examples of the in-bulk writing. The results of the experimental investigation of the dependence of the induced index change on the pulse energy and the numerical modelling of the corresponding laser-glass interaction are presented. The distribution of the plasma density is simulated that may bridge the gap between the models of the pulse propagation and the induced permanent refractive index change.
  • We have measured the energy of the directed motion of multiply charged ions produced when solid targets are exposed to low-contrast (10{sup -3}-10{sup -2}) femtosecond laser pulses with intensities 10{sup 15}-10{sup 16} W cm{sup -2}. The measurements are based on the recording of spatially resolved X-ray spectra for H-and He-like oxygen ions in the target plane. Analysis of the He{sub {beta}} and Ly{sub {alpha}} line profiles has revealed fractions of accelerated ions in plasma with energies from several to several tens of kiloelectronvolts. We show that using a layer of frozen nanometer-size water droplets as the targets leads to anmore » effective absorption of laser pulses and a twofold rise in the energy (to 0.1 MeV) of He-like oxygen ions compared to the use of solid targets.« less
  • Specific features of the interaction of ultrashort laser pulses with solid modified targets are considered. Our experimental studies show that the use of such targets increases the 'temperature' of hot plasma electrons. The spatial and temporal structure of the ion current of the plasma is investigated.

  • We report on the growth kinetics of semipolar (11-22) InGaN layers by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy. Similarly to (0001)-oriented InGaN, optimum growth conditions for this crystallographic orientation correspond to the stabilization of two atomic layers of In on the growing InGaN surface, and the limits of this growth window in terms of substrate temperature and In flux lie at same values for both polar and semipolar material. However, in semipolar samples, the incorporation of In is inhibited, even for growth temperatures within the Ga-limited regime of polar InGaN growth.
  • We developed a method for compound host film synthesis and in situ doping based on plasma assisted pulsed laser deposition by coablation of two targets with two pulsed laser beams. The feasibility of this method was demonstrated by the preparation of Er-doped GaN films. In the reactive nitrogen environment and with the assistance of nitrogen plasma generated from electron cyclotron resonance microwave discharge, the ablation of a polycrystalline GaAs target resulted in the reactive deposition of a GaN host film, whereas the ablation of a metallic Er target provided the host with Er atoms for in situ doping in themore » growing GaN host film. Hexagonal GaN films were formed on a silicon substrate as the host and Er was incorporated into the host with controlled concentration. We found that the composition of the compound host could be adjusted by varying the laser fluence on the target for host deposition or the energy of the plasma stream bombarding the growing host film. The dopant concentration could also be independently controlled to vary in a wide range by changing the pulse repetition ratio of the two laser beams or the laser fluence on the target for dopant supply. It was also proved that doping of very low concentrations could be easily realized by simply adjusting the pulse repetition rate and the fluence of the second laser.« less
