Paper Abstract

Rapid progress has been made in the last few years in the development direct-write, femtosecond laser micro-structuring and waveguide writing techniques in various materials, particularly semiconductor and other photo-sensitive glasses. There is considerable potential for this becoming a disruptive technology in photonic device fabrication, perhaps even leading to the development of devices that are difficult to fabricate by any other technique. We will review these developments, and with an optimistic eye, offer some perspectives on the future of this technology for opto-electronic systems.
