In recent years laser processing has attracted much attention in view of its potential use in basic solid-state and material science research as well as in new processing technologies. The dominant feature of laser processing being the deposition of large amounts of energy (a few J/cm2) over very short time scales (a few tens of nanoseconds), it leads to melting of surface layers of solid followed by rapid resolidification. In this article, a few basic consequences of such laser-induced phenomena in silicon are reviewed.
