Research

Research Project: Texturing Using Ultrashort Laser Pulses (TULP)
http://www.utwente.nl/ctw/wa/research/laser/tulp/

The project is aimed at developing processes for the fabrication of micro and nano structures on various materials by the use of pico-second and femto-second laser pulses. Many nano-manufacturing processes are based on lithographic techniques as in silicon wafer industry, but increasingly the new drive is for low cost, high precision products based on non-silicon materials like polymers, ceramics and metals. The new surface structures which arise from laser-material interaction offer new technological approach for mass industrial production of functional surfaces based on features in 100 nm – 10 µm range.

The main task of J. Z. P. Skolski in the TULP project is the modeling of Laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSSs). LIPSS formation is commonly attributed to the interaction of electromagnetic waves with rough surfaces. This phenomenon is studied numerically using the finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD) to solve Maxwell equations.
