Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical properties of femtosecond laser-induced micro-structures containing gold nanoparticles in silicate glasses were investigated by using Z-scan technique with 8ns pulses at 532nm. Optical limiting effects of such structures were also measured. The experimental results were found to be significantly variable for the microstructures under different induction conditions. Strong optical nonlinearities in these yielded structures can be attributed to the surface plasmon absorption of gold nanoparticles precipitated in glasses. These microstructures exhibiting large optical nonlinearities are inferred to be useful for the fabrication of integrated ultrafast optical switching and laser protection devices.
