Understanding Femtosecond Laser Modification of Bulk Dielectrics

The minimum spacing of a plasma waveguide was calculated and applied to the formation of periodic nanocracks. The minimum spacing decreased with decreasing plasma frequency but was found to have limited effect on the spacing of the nanocracks. An extension to a standard Finite-Difference Time-Domain method was created to include nonlinear processes and the dynamic build up of the electron plasma. The ionized area produced in the simulation agrees with experiment. The existence of a...
