Abstract
We extend a previous theoretical study, in which we have predicted that a solid-solid phase transition can be induced by a laser in arsenic under pressure, to higher fluences. In particular, we compute the fluence that is needed to induce an ultrafast structural transition from the A7 to the simple cubic phase as a function of the applied pressure. We further discuss the possibility of ultrafast, laser-induced melting.
