In this final report, we describe our progress in studying ultrafast laser modification of silicon, with a focus on better understanding the inception of surface texturing and laser-induced periodic surface structures LIPSS at low fluences. We also briefly describe the recent extension of our work to ultrafast laser modification of gallium phosphide GaP, a III-V semiconductor material with high second-order nonlinear susceptibility. We close with a discussion of other current work, including fundamental studies of nanosecond-laser treatment of germanium Ge in order to develop hyper doped Ge for Short Wavelength-Infrared SWIR photodetection, future directions, and a list of published work supported thus far through the AFOSRs support. We sincerely thank the AFOSR for its continued support throughout the project.
