An interferometry-based method for direct observation of phase modifications caused by transient temperature and pressure changes during irradiation of glass using ultra-short laser pulses is shown. The method provides a 3-dimensional time-resolved phase distribution and allows to distinguish between reversible and irreversible laser induced phase changes inside the glass.
