Abstract

Experimental evidence of the formation of periodic structures during multipulse TEA CO2 laser irradiation of fused silica samples is reported. It is shown that the periodic structures formation is determined by the interference between incident and scattered waves, resulting in different values of both the vaporization velocity and the recoil pressure of the vapors back to the interaction surface.
