One pulse of a KrF excimer laser emitting radiation at a wavelength of 248 nm was used to completely fill via holes in silicon dioxide (diameter: 2 μm, depth: 1 μm) by melting a 600‐nm‐thick gold layer on a 100‐nm‐thick Cr adhesion layer. The pulse width was 23 ns full width at half‐maximum (FWHM) and the pulse energy was 160 mJ, yielding a laser fluence at sample surface of ∼0.6 J/cm2. The result is a nearly planar structure.
