Paper Abstract

In this paper we report on the state-of-the-art of the ultrashort (fs) laser pulse-driven surface microprocessing of materials [metals, semiconductors and dielectrics (glasses and polymers)]. We emphasize the advantages of fs time scale pulses of laser-matter interactions, e.g., no heat effects in laser-coupled outside zones in plasma breakdown below intensity scales. A two-temperature model (energy coupling between electronic and phonon subsystems), the role of Dember effects, and ballistic transport are also considered.
