The femtosecond laser ablation of silicon amidst an externally applied magnetic field in different orientations was investigated with respect to the scanning direction and polarisation of the laser beam, by observation of ablation patterns and debris displacement in a range of fluences, magnetic fields strengths, and geometries. Ultra-short ∼230 fs laser pulses of 1030 nm wavelengths were utilised in the single and multi-pulse irradiation modes. Ablation with an externally applied magnetic B-field Bext≈0.15 T was shown to strongly affect debris formation and deposition. The mechanism of surface plasmon polariton (SPP) wave can explain the ablated periodic patterns observed with alignment along the magnetic field lines. The application potential of external field controlled ablation is discussed.
