F2 laser ablation etching of GaN has been demonstrated. The etching geometry, etching rate and microroughness were investigated, and compared to the case of KrF excimer laser ablation etching. The etching process is consisted of the ablation and hydrochloric acid treatment. Very sharp edge was found along the etched area. The microroughness of etched surface is reduced as the laser intensity increases. The f2 laser ablation of GaN is thought to be initiated by direct photoionization by single-7.9 eV photon absorption.
