New article just released in Journal of Optics (IOP)

Preferential frequencies of the light interaction with a rough surface, also called the Eye of Sauron.

The latest contribution of the Photonics section, entitled Toward the formation of crossed laser-induced periodic surface structures, has just been published in the July issue of the Journal of Optics. In this paper, we study the formation of a new type of laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPPSs) using a femtosecond pulsed laser on the basis of the SipeDrude theory solved with a finite-difference time-domain scheme. The numerical results indicate the possibility of coexisting structures parallel and perpendicular to the polarization of the incident light for sufficiently low reduced collision frequency. The full text is available here. See the Publications page for more details.
