Abstract: The study of laser-glass interaction is of great interest because of the various related application. Within this field of study, this research studies specifically femtosecond laser-chalcogenide glass interaction and more specifically glasses made of arsenic and sulfur. Sulfiderich glass were prepared in the binary domain AsxS100–xwith x varying from 10 to 40. Glasseswere prepared under controlled atmosphere in sealed ampoules and their thermal, optical and structural properties were explored. Laser-glass interactions were studied using a 800 nm femtosecond laser. The studies were performed systematically by varying laser power and exposition time. Similar studies were done at two other wavelength, 400 nm and 266 nm. The chalcogenide glass-femtosecond laser interaction induced nanostructures with characteristics varying depending on laser parameters. Surface analysis done with a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and an atomic force microscope (AFM) show surface ablation and large expansion after 800 nm laser irradiation. A variety of surface structures were created by laser irradiation and Raman spectroscopy studies explored their structural properties. Finally, to understand the effect of increased sulfur content on the induced nanostructures, corellations supported by various existing models were done on the observed structures.
