Abstract

Circularly polarized (CP) femtosecond laser light focused into fused silica produces a permanent recording of optical helicity. Material modification is in the form of highly ordered submicrometer chiral structures whose handedness follows the handedness of the CP light. The evolution of the ordered structures from chaotic modification is described.
