Paper Abstract

We present the fabrication of waveguides in optical materials using a femtosecond laser. The direct laser writing technique has the unique advantage of allowing volume structures to be fabricated. We investigate several writing schemes in non-oxide glasses and characterize the photo-induced modifications of the optical properties. These changes are linked to structural changes in the glass matrix, as revealed by Raman spectroscopy.
