Femtosecond laser processing of surfaces: controlling physical and chemical properties

Photonic processes, in particular laser based material processing methods allow for a variety of possibilities to provide materials with novel characteristics. Especially laser beam sources, emitting ultrashort laser pulses in the femtosecond regime (10-15 s), enable the realization of novel material properties. On this time scale, light – material interaction is too short for an efficient heat transfer into the material.
