We report about the fabrication of asymmetrical periodic arrays on stainless steel by means of Direct Laser Interference Patterning. The fabrication strategy consists in irradiating the surface of the material under a certain inclination angle using a two-beam interference setup equipped with a pulsed picosecond laser system (70 ps) operating at a wavelength of 1064 nm. In particular, for tilting angles higher than 30°, well-defined saw-tooth like geometries could be produced. Due to the ultra-short duration of the laser pulses, also Laser Induced Periodic Surfaces Structures are fabricated, which create hierarchical morphologies similar to the one present in nature.
