Paper Abstract

Laser induced darkening in two kinds of glasses, the Nd-doped silicate laser glass and type N31 Nd-doped phosphate laser glass, were studied by exposing the glass samples in 266nm nanosecond UV laser and 800nm IR femtosecond laser. UV laser and IR fs laser induced different types of color centers in silicate glass, while in phosphate glass, UV laser and fs laser generated same type of color center. Possible mechanisms of color center formation were discussed.
