Abstract

In this work we show that is possible to produce stable color centers in YLiF4 crystals, with dimensional control, by focusing high-intensity ultrashort laser pulses in the bulk. In particular, with the spectroscopic characterization of ultrashort laser-irradiated YLF samples, it was possible to discuss the basic formation mechanisms of these centers.
