Femtosecond (fs) laser pulse ablation (pulse duration of 150 fs, wavelength of 775 nm, repetition rate of 1 kHz) of single-crystalline TeO2 surfaces was performed in air using the direct focusing technique. The lateral and vertical dimensions of laser ablated craters as well as the laser damage thresholds were evaluated for different pulse numbers applied to the same spot. The joint observation using optical microscopy, atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy revealed the… CONTINUE READING
