Abstract

The action of laser radiation with wavelength λ=10.6µm causes substantial structural changes in photosensitive glass as a consequence of the processes of induced crystallization and secondary amorphization, which occur at a high rate and are reversible. As a result of such structure–phase transformations, the original materials acquire completely new properties, including chemical, optical, mechanical, etc. properties.
