Abstract

We report the fabrication and the characterization of buried waveguide in As2S3 glass. It is well known that the interaction of femtosecond pulses with this material at high laser repetition rates results in a mainly negative refractive index variation, due to heat accumulation effect. However, we show here that a helical translation of the sample parallel to the laser beam, allows the inscription of a core of positive refractive variation, with full control over its magnitude and diameter. An example demonstrating the high symmetry of the guided mode is given.
