|Abstract:||Nanostructures on metal film surfaces have been written directly using a pulsed ultraviolet laser. The optical near-field effects of the laser were investigated. Spherical silica particles (500-1000 nm in diameter) were placed on metal films. After laser illumination with a single laser shot, nanoholes were obtained at the original position of the particles. The mechanism for the formation of the nanostructure patterns was investigated and found to be the near-field optical resonance effect induced by the particles on the surface. The size of the nanohole was studied as a function of laser fluence and silica particle size. The experimental results show a good agreement with those of the relevant theoretical calculations of the near-field light intensity distribution. The method of particle-enhanced laser irradiation allows the study of field enhancement effects as well as its potential applications for nanolithography.|
