Paper Abstract

Micron-scale convex deformations can be produced in two kinds of chalcogenide glasses only by exposures to focused cw laser beams. In covalent compounds such as As2S3 the deformation is formed through the so-called giant photoexpansion phenomenon, and in Ag-containing chalcogenide glasses it is made through photinduced accumulation of Ag+ ions. These phenomena are promising for fabrication of micro optical components.
