Can I use "after" instead of "in" in the following sentence? She went to the supermarket ten minutes ago and will come back in half an hour.

Yes, you can use 'after' instead of 'in'. It's more typical to use 'in'.

'After' and 'in' ,in this sentence express two meanings. 'After' means it will cost more than half an hour for her to come back , however , ' in ' means it will cost less than half an hour for her to come back.
