Recording and Reading of Three-dimensional Optical Memory in Glasses

Juodkazis, Saulius; Rode, Andrei V; Gamaly, Eugene G; Matsuo, Shigeki; Mizawa, H


We report on three-dimensional (3D) optical memory recording and reading in glass by femtosecond pulses. Optically induced dielectric breakdown of glass is a mechanism of recording. The formulae of dielectric breakdown presented are applicable, in principle, for any crystalline or amorphous dielectric material. Scaling dependences of the probabilities of multi-photon and impact ionization are given. The measured threshold of an in-bulk dielectric breakdown of silica was reproduced numerically...[Show more]
