We review our recent experimental efforts towards developing photonic and biophotonic applications of femtosecond laser induced self-organized planar nanocracks inside fused silica glass. Our results show that sub-diffraction limited, periodic, plrar cracks can be produced, organized, erased and rewritten and basically controlled inside fused silica glass where they can be diagnosed optically using form birefringence. The high degree of control over these self-replicated periodic structures...[Show more]
