Upon the excitation by an ultrashort laser pulse the conditions in a material can drastically change, altering its optical properties and therefore the relative amount of absorbed energy, a quan- tity relevant for determining the damage threshold and for developing a detailed simulation of a structuring process. The subject of interest in this work is the d-band metal gold which has an absorption edge marking the transition of free valence electrons and an absorbing deep d-band with bound… Expand
