Fabricating waveguide Bragg gratings (WBGs) in bulk materials using ultrashort laser pulses

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Optical waveguide Bragg gratings (WBGs) can be created in transparent materials using femtosecond laser pulses. The technique is conducted without the need for lithography, ion-beam fabrication methods, or clean room facilities. This paper reviews the field of ultrafast laser-inscribed WBGs since its inception, with a particular focus on fabrication techniques, WBG characteristics, WBG types, and WBG applications.
