The morphology of the borosilicate glass surface machined by femtosecond laser pulses was presented. A thin rim was formed around ablated craters after a single laser pulse. The rim was a resolidified splash from a molten layer generated during the ablation process. The results showed that the molten layer was a few micrometer thick and existed for a few microseconds.
