The interaction of ultra-fast sub-picosecond laser pulses with solids is a very broad area of research. The boundaries for research fields covered by this review are defined as follows. A laser pulse in the context of the review is of ultra-short duration if the pulse is shorter than all major relaxation times. Such pulses excite only electrons, leaving the lattice cold for the time required for the transfer of the absorbed laser energy from the heated electrons to the lattice. For this reason,...[Show more]
