Abstract

Two-photon excitation of carriers in boron E′-center-containing borosilicate glasses results in a photoencoding of selectively etchable regions. Using a turbulent etching process followed by polishing, we have demonstrated a number of patterning capabilities for microtechnology applications such as ultrafast capillary electrophoresis chips and rapid prototyping of diffractive optical elements.
