Abstract

Based on a literature review, it was concluded that Laser-induced Periodic Surface Structures (LIPSS) on polymers are produced when applying laser sources operating either in the ultraviolet wavelength and nanosecond pulse duration, or radiation of wavelengths ranging from 265nm to 1045nm and pulse durations in the femtosecond regime. LIPSS were not reported when using picosecond laser sources. The purpose of this paper is to study whether (and if so which) LIPSS form on polymers when picosecond pulsed laser source is applied. Low Spatial Frequency LIPSS (LSFL) and High Spatial Frequency LIPSS (HSFL) have been obtained on polycarbonate and on polystyrene when applying picosecond laser pulses at a wavelength of 343nm on single spots and on processed lines. When using a wavelength of 515nm, LSFL and HSFL have been produced only on polycarbonate, but also led to porosity of the structured area.
