Abstract

We present what is to our knowledge the first experimental study of light-induced reflectivity changes at an αGa/Si interface irradiated by femtosecond and picosecond laser pulses. After exposure, the reflectivity can increase from R0.55, which is typical for αGa, to R0.8, which is close to that of liquid   Ga. The initial step in the reflectivity change of 2–4  ps is resolved with 150-fs laser pulses. The light-induced reflectivity change relaxes during 100 ns10 μs, depending strongly on the background temperature of the Ga mirror and the laser fluence.

Pump–probe measurements of light-induced reflectivity in Ga films induced by 150-fs 800-nm laser-pulse excitation at 21.5mJ/cm2 (squares) and 4.5mJ/cm2 (triangles) laser fluences. The zero point indicates the pump-laser excitation; the background mirror temperature was kept at 13 °C in both experiments.

Relative reflectivity Rt=500ps/Rt=0ps of Ga films on Si induced with 150–fs pulses at 800  nm (crosses) at 500-ps delay time at a sample temperature of 21 °C. For comparison the results are presented for 6-ps and 60-ps pulses at 1.053 μm.

Transient light-induced reflectivity increase in Ga films on Si measured with 150-fs 800-nm pump and probe pulses at various pump energy densities. The intrinsic response of 2–4  ps of the Ga films was clearly resolved. The sample temperature was kept at 21 °C in all experiments.
