Abstract

Received in revised form 5 September 2015 A complex multilayer thin film including ten (Al/Ti) bilayers deposited by ion sputtering on Si(1 0 0) Accepted 27 October 2015 substrate to a total thickness of 260 nm were illuminated at different laser irradiance in the range Available online 10 November 2015 9 −2 0.25–3.5 × 10 W cm . Single pulse laser irradiation was done at normal incidence in air, with the single wavelength, either at 532 nm or 1064 nm or with both laser light simultaneously in the ratio of 1:10 for Keywords: energy per pulse between second harmonic and 1064 nm.
