Mechanically hard and broadband gradient refractive index antireflection coating was developed. It has a high damage threshold of >=6 J/cm2 at 355 nm and 12–13 J/cm2 in the visible to near-infrared region. It will be applicable to high power pulsed lasers as well as to industrial uses.

    The mechanisms of SiO ablation have been investigated at laser wavelengths in the infrared, at 10.53 μm, and in the ultraviolet at 248 nm. The energy content of the SiO molecule in the plume and the occurrence of phase transformations in the target, are studied as a function of wavelength and...

    We demonstrate continuum generation with pulses from the long femtosecond up to the picosecond regime. To understand the mechanism involved in this process we study the influence of the spectral width and the chirp of the pump pulses. We further investigate the threshold for stable continuum...

    Investigations have been performed on the physical mechanisms of picosecond laser ablation of silicon carbide at 355 and 1064 nm, which have not been well understood yet. The study shows that the low-fluence ablation rates are close for 355 and 1064 nm, and the dominant material removal...

    Using high-intensity femtosecond laser pulses for surface structuring, we produce the black metals using Au and Ti90/Al6/V4 that have absorption over 90% over a broad wavelength range from ultraviolet to infrared. The enhanced absorption of the black metals is caused by surface structures. The...
