A detailed study is done on the growth of microstructures and sub-wavelength laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSSs) on silicon (Si) surface using nitrogen (N$_2$) nanosecond (ns) laser processing in air. The period of LIPSS is found to be as small as 37 nm which is close to λ/9 times the irradiated laser wavelength (337 nm). In the optimised condition the sums total of reflectance (specular reflectance + diffuse reflectance) was found to be as low as 10% for a broad wavelength range. The reflectance behaviour has been correlated with the morphology of the generated microstructures.
