Abstract

Structural changes in silica glass after waveguide writing with femtosecond laser pulse were discussed. The waveguides were analyzed by inspection of their near- and far-field mode profiles. Details of the spectroscopic changes as a function of femtosecond and argon ion laser power, intensity and exposure times for both fused silica and phosphate glasses were also discussed. The results revealed that the modified glass shows a broad fluorescence centered at roughly 600 nm upon excitation with the 488 nm light.
