abstract

The index of refraction of most glasses can be permanently changed by exposure to femtosecond laser pulses. This effect allows for the fabrication of various two-dimensional or three-dimensional light guiding structures. Passive and active optical devices have been manufactured using this femtosecond direct-write technique. A closely related technique has recently been demonstrated to manufacture three-dimensional microfluidic networks. We describe recent work at Translume and RPI in femtosecond direct write to produce devices which incorporate on a single glass chip optical network with microfluidic network.
