A grating structure was inscribed in a tellurite glass after irradiation with high-repetition rate femtosecond laser pulses. High diffraction efficiency was obtained due to the large refractive index change, which was caused by the precipitation of Te crystals in the laser modified region. Two-dimensional multicolored arrays were generated by cascaded four-wave mixing (CFWM) together with the prefabricated grating structure, which showed much more superior than those induced by beam breakup.
