Paper Abstract

A method of producing submicron (hundreds of nanometers and less) periodical structures on the solid state surface by means of one-pulse laser radiation treatment is developed. The resulting structures look like a system of narrow parallel equidistant grooves. Before a treatment the surface may be covered by one of several thin layers to be destroyed. It is possible to obtain the grooves, a width of which is from 10 to 100 times less than the wavelength of used laser radiation. It is possible to vary the distance between the grooves in a wide range. When a carbon dioxide TEA-laser (0.2 joule-energy, 10.6 micron-wavelength) was used for the treatment of samples (800 angstrom-aluminum film evaporated on the optical glass plates) periodical structures looking like a system of narrow parallel equidistant grooves were produced on an area with a diameter of about 2 mm. The width of the grooves was less than 0.3 micron and a distance between the grooves varied from 7 to 500 microns. Therefore this method has enabled us to obtain grooves with a width about 30 times less than the wavelength of the laser radiation used.
