During ablation tests with 10 pulses per spot we have determined an average LIPSS spacing of ∼870 nm for the fundamental wavelength of 1030 nm of the laser system and of ∼370 nm for the second harmonic wavelength of 515 nm. Those values fit the description of LIPSS reported elsewhere in the literature, e. g. [31].

“Then, the ablated surfaces form a multilayer structure of water-silica-silicon. Multi-photon absorption occurs in the liquid, transforming it into a metallic state [40]. Therefore, SPPs can also be excited at the interface between water and silica, modulating the surface structures into Si-HSFLs [40].”

“The life time of an SPP typically ranges from sub-ps to several ps [76] depending on the materials and irradiation wavelength, and can be extended up to microseconds when using a thin film sandwiched by different media [77].”

“Furthermore, it was shown that [20], uniform FLIPSS are formed on metals with short surface plasmon polariton (SPP) propagation length, as we will discuss in detail later. […] It has been shown recently [20], that FLIPSSs uniformity is governed by the decay length of SPPs; shorter LSPP provide more uniform FLIPSSs. This conclusion is rational as shorter LSPP implies less interaction of the excited surface wave with surface irregularities. […]

“Recently, Gnilitskyi et al. [50] reported that it was possible to produce highly regular LIPSS with a throughput 2.5 times’ faster than that reported by Bonse et al. and thus the processing time and cost could be even lower.

“The results of Derrien et al. [30]  show that the SPPs can be excited by using a fs laser with 800 nm wavelength, 100 fs pulse duration, and laser fluences larger than 0.7 J∕cm2. A comparison of the calculated SPP periodicities and experimentally measured ripple periodicities confirms that the formation of periodic structures with a reduced number of laser pulses is due to the excitation of SPPs at the Si surface. […] In the case of laser processing in water [29], a reduced ablation threshold and LIPSS with approximately five times smaller periods Λ LIPSS ∼ 0.15 × λ have been observed in the same direction as in air. […] This behavior originates from the SPP excitation in the presence of a 10 – 20 nm thick silicon oxide layer and the optical excitation of water.
