Abstract

We demonstrate the possibility of three-dimensional optical data storage inside a specific zinc phosphate glass containing silver by using third-harmonic generation (THG) imaging. Information is stored inside the glass with femtosecond laser irradiation below the refractive index modification threshold. We use the same laser for THG readout. The capability of storage with this technique is discussed.
