Abstract: This study investigated the interaction of femtosecond laser with phase change optical data storage media. The static experiment setup was employed to determine whether a single femtosecond laser pulse could induce amorphous or crystalline mark in phase change media or not. Our experiments show that even a single femtosecond pulse can induce and erase an amorphous mark in GeSbTe films. Using time resolved microscope, it was observed that a transient non-equilibrium state of the excited material in phase change media after femtosecond laser irradiation was formed in picoseconds time scale. An electronically induced non-thermal phase transition is suggested to be the mechanism of these ultrafast phase transitions.
