Abstract

We demonstrate crystals (LiNbO3-like) that were space-selectively nucleated and grown in the bulk of silica-based glass by femtosecond laser irradiation at a high repetition rate (typ. 300 kHz). Oriented crystals with their polar axis mostly aligned with or perpendicular to the laser scanning direction have been fabricated by manipulation of the temperature gradient in adjusting the laser parameters. The mechanism for the orientation of femtosecond laser-induced crystallization is briefly discussed.
