Abstract

We have studied nanopatterns induced by nanosecond pulsed laser irradiation on (111) plane surfaces of a polycrystalline iron-aluminum alloy and evaluated their magnetic properties. Multiple nanosecond pulsed laser irradiation induces a wavelength-dependent surface transformation of the lattice structure from a B2-type to a supersaturated body centered cubic lattice. The selective formation of surface nanopatterns consisting of holes, stripes, polygonal networks, and dot-like nanoprotrusions can be observed. Furthermore, focused magneto-optical Kerr effect measurements reveal that the magnetic properties of the resultant nanostructured region changes from a paramagnetic to a ferromagnetic phase in accordance with the number of laser pulses.
