Light induced metallization in laser-deposited galliun films

MacDonald, K; Fedotov, Vassili; Eason, Robert W; Zheludev, N; Rode, Andrei V; Luther-Davies, Barry; Emel'yanov, Vladimir


Light-induced metallization was studied in laser-deposited gallium films. It was found that mirrors prepared upon silica glass by ultrafast pulsed laser deposition of elemental gallium shows a highly reproducible and fully reversible light-induced reflectivity increase. The effect was explained as being due to nonthermal light-induced metallization of gallium at the interface.
