Paper Abstract

Ultrafast dynamic ellipsometry, a technique that probes a sample with chirped laser pulses at two angles and with two orthogonal polarizations, was used to measure the effective refractive index across the ablation region of a Si(111) wafer exposed to a 100 fs ablation pulse. The resulting refractive index data show a significant increase in the extinction coefficient, indicative of the melting of silicon.
