Picosecond high-repetition-rate pulsed laser ablation of dielectrics: the effect of energy accumulation between pulses
We report experiments on the ablation of arsenic trisulphide and silicon using high-repetition-rate (megahertz) trains of picosecond pulses. In the case of arsenic trisulphide, the average single pulse fluence at ablation threshold is found to be >100 times lower when pulses are delivered as a 76-MHz train compared with the case of a solitary pulse. For silicon, however, the threshold for a 4.1-MHz train equals the value for a solitary pulse. A model of irradiation by high-repetition-rate pulse...[Show more]
