Femtosecond inscription of the first order Bragg gratings in pure fused silica

Dubov, Mykhaylo, Mezentsev, Vladimir and Bennion, Ian (2007). Femtosecond inscription of the first order Bragg gratings in pure fused silica. IN: Nanotech 2006 Conference Technical Proceedings. Nano Science and Technology Institute.


The fabrication of sub-micron periodic structures beyond diffraction limit is a major motivation for the present paper. We describe the fabrication of the periodic structure of 25 mm long with a pitch size of 260 nm which is less than a third of the wavelength used. This is the smallest reported period of the periodic structure inscribed by direct point-by-point method. A prototype of the add-drop filter, which utilizes such gratings, was demonstrated in one stage fabrication process of femtosecond inscription, in the bulk fused silica.
