Paper Abstract

Challenges for laser-induced structure ordering from nano-particles to single-crystal patterning in glasses are described. Transparent crystallization in glass must be the best material solution to obtain novel functional glasses with a permanent second-order optical nonlinearity. We focus on the new functions created by structure ordering in glass by means of laser micro-fabrication for space-selected crystallization. Two topics in our recent experimental results of laser-induced structure ordering in glass will be presented as follows: (1) UV-laser induced structure ordering of nano-particles in tellurite-based glasses and possible photonic integrated circuits with innovative minute scale. (2) Single crystalline patterning by atom heat laser processing in Sm-doped glasses for optical waveguides with second-order nonlinearity.
