ABSTRACT
Exposure of a falling stream of 1 μm average size α-quartz particles to a continuous wave or pulsed CO2 laser beam in air resulted in the formation of a complete series of high-pressure phases of silica: coesite, stishovite, and apparently even denser forms with α-PbO2 and Fe2N structures. Since the laser exposure technique works with the carbon black to diamond transition, the technique is confirmed as a simple and generally applicable means to achieve the same effects as exposure to several hundred kilobars pressure.

    The ability of UV laser radiation at 248 nm to cause the photoablation of SiO[sub x] films is demonstrated. Given the relatively low doses necessary to ablate significant SiO[sub x] thicknesses and the excellent etched wall verticality obtained, it appears that SiO[sub x] might be a viable UV...

    The photoreduction processes stimulated either the cw (power density 105–106 W/cm2) or pulsed (pulse energy 3–4 J, pulse duration 200 ns, effective laser spot diameter 1 mm) radiation of a CO2 laser on the surfaces of fused and crystalline quartz, as well as of natural silicates...

    We show in this paper single-shot and multi-shot laser-induced damage thresholds (LIDTs) of HfO2/SiO2 high reflective films (the reflectance = 99.9%) are affected by the presence of a water layer absorbed on the surface of the porous films. When the water layer was removed with the process of...

    The second harmonic signal generated in native Si/SiO2 interfaces using femtosecond laser pulses (80± 5 fs, 10.5 nJ, 1.59 eV) is time dependent. The temporal evolution of the electric field-induced second harmonic signal (EFISH) shows a steady incline and subsequent saturation for incident...
