Paper Abstract

We describe the photo induced formation of gradient index (GRIN) lenses in thin films of chalcogenide glass (ChG) of Ge25As30S45 composition. We examine the changes of thickness of these samples by DekTak profilometry, as well as the optical performance and wave front distortions of the obtained lenses by using a Shack Hartmann sensor. The GRIN formation is related to the photo induced shift of the band gap towards shorter wavelengths (so-called photo-bleaching effect). The corresponding photo-induced birefringence of this material is in the origin of anisotropic GRIN lenses formed [1].
