Fabrication processes such as laser micromachining and laser based photolithography are well established within the automotive, electronics and aeronautic industries, however, except in a handful of cases, laser based micro-processing is infrequently used in the fabrication of photonic devices. In this paper novel laser assisted methods for rapid prototyping of photonic devices such as periodically poled lithium niobate and 2-D photonic crystal structures are reviewed.
