Abstract

Light-induced oscillatory behaviors of transmission in chalcogenide glasses are investigated using a continuous wave tunable Ti-sapphire laser. It is shown that phase change, thermal fluctuation, nonlinear index change and periodic self focusing are not at the origin of light-induced oscillatory transmittance in chalcogenide glasses. Instead, results indicate that the interference of transmitting and reflecting light is at the origin of the oscillatory behaviors of transmitted light. Just like the principle of Fabry-Pérot interferometer, these interferences result in a periodic change in transmission as the related interferential beams get in and out of phase. However, this transmitting oscillatory behavior can be registered by the detector only when the change of optical path length difference initiated by photo-induced effects is slower enough compared with the corresponding response time of the detector. Several photo-structural effects contribute to that phenomenon including photo-expansion, photo-darkening, and permanent self focusing. It appears that fluctuations of the light source intensity induce a wide distribution of the oscillatory periods.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Emerging process of photo-induced transmittance oscillations in GeSe4 glass irradiated at 880nm with 18W/cm2 using a 2mm2 irradiated area. (a) the normal photo-darkening process; (b) the latent period; (c) the appearance of the transmittance oscillations up to several tens of hours. The distance between the sample and the detector is 1.2cm. More strictly speaking, transmittance is the relative value registered by detectors.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Evolution of the Raman spectra of a GeSe4 glass sample irradiated with a 785 nm sub-bandgap light source from the beginning (solid black line) up to clear appearance of photo-expansion (hollow Red circle).
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Transmission spectra of GeSe4 glass showing the absorption coefficient at longer wavelength.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Correspondence between the source laser intensity and the transmitted intensity during the transitory phase leading to the onset of the oscillatory mode. The curves connected by triangles and circles indicate the intensity of reference light source (top) and transmitting light (bottom), corresponding to the relative transmittance curve shown in Fig. 1 (b).
