Abstract

In this research, we studied the formation of laser-induced periodic surface structures on the stainless steel surface using femtosecond laser pulses. A 780nm wavelength femtosecond laser, through a 0.2mm pinhole aperture for truncating fluence distribution, was focused onto the stainless steel surface. Under different experimental condition, low-spatial-frequency laser-induced periodic surface structures with a period of 526nm and high-spatial-frequency laser-induced periodic surface structures with a period of 310nm were obtained. The mechanism of the formation of laser-induced periodic surface structures on the stainless steel surface is discussed.
