Laser-induced structural instabilities in amorphous materials Academic Article uri icon


  • Amorphous materials irradiated by cw lasers undergo structural changes, which depend quasiperiodically on the irradiation time. The changes in the transmitted light intensity are related to the changes of the Raman line shape. The structural changes between metastable states are favored by the photogenerated free carriers.
