Abstract

We report on structured light-induced femtosecond direct laser writing (DLW) under tight focusing in non-commercial silver-containing zinc phosphate glass, which leads to original patterns of fluorescent silver clusters. These fluorescence topologies show unique features of frustrated diffusion of charged species, giving rise to distorted silver cluster spatial distributions. Fluorescence and second harmonic generation correlative microscopy demonstrate the realization of structured light-induced direct laser poling, resulting from a laser-induced permanent and stable electric field buried inside the modified glass. Thus, structured light-induced DLW remarkably enables both linear and nonlinear patterning. This work highlights the interest of optical phase engineering to obtain nontrivial beam profiles and subsequent photo-induced patterns that cannot be reached under Gaussian beam irradiation.
