Abstract

Two-dimensional periodic microstructures, including both microholes and micro-orbicular platforms, have been fabricated on the surface of silica glass by a single shot of three interfered femtosecond laser pulses. The three-dimensional structure of a fabricated hexagonal lattice can be revealed by atomic force microscopy. The formation of the microstructure and the dynamic process of the interaction between the femtosecond laser and the silica glass have been discussed.
