Paper Abstract

Using tightly focused femtosecond laser pulses waveguides can be fabricated inside various glasses. This technique has the potential to generate not only planar but three-dimensional photonic devices. In this paper we present, to the best of our knowledge, the first three-dimensional integrated optical device, a 1×3 splitter. The optical properties of this device will be discussed.
