Laser-writing inside uniaxially birefringent crystals: fine morphology of ultrashort pulse-induced changes in lithium niobate

Karpinski, Pawel; Shvedov, Vladlen; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Hnatovsky, Kyrylo (Cyril)


This work presents a detailed analysis of the morphology of femtosecond laser-induced changes in bulk lithium niobate (LiNbO3) – one of the most common host materials in photonics – using second-harmonic generation microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. It is shown that focused linearly polarized near-infrared pulses can produce two or three distinct axially separated regions of modified material, depending on whether the pulse propagation is along or perpendicular to the optical axis....[Show more]
