Stationary, single colour, pump-probe reflectivity measurements were performed for the first time on the silicon/silicon dioxide interface of n-type silicon using a femtosecond laser. The change in the reflected probe beam increased with time of several minutes during irradiation of the sample with a strong pump beam.
