Paper Abstract

The ring-core refractive-index profile in RO-Al2O3-SiO2 glass (R = Ca and Ba) was formed by the manipulation of a platinum (Pt) microsphere via continuous-wave laser irradiation method (the CW-LM3 method). The homogeneously modified area could be obtained in the CAS glass (R = Ca) with a wide velocity of the microsphere, though the BAS glass (R = Ba) showed inhomogeneous modified area with periodic structure. The even-width modified line was fabricated by controlling the velocity of the Pt microsphere, and the ring-core structure with the highest refractive index change was fabricated in the CAS glass with the Pt-microsphere speed of 46 μm/sec.
