Pulsed green laser with 532 nm wavelength and 270 ns pulse duration was firsjt time used to produce a textured zone on a Ni-P disk substrate. Combining a so-called tip-writing method, typical small bumps of interest with bump diameter around 3 nm and with bump height about 10-20 nm were successfully created. A dependence of bump height on bump diameter was discussed under the case of tip-writing. And the changes of bump shapes with laser pulse energy were studied and bumps with sunflower-like shape were observed under low laser pulse energy.
