Controlling material properties through nanotechnology

THRUST 3 – Nanostructured materials

Because of growing interest in nanotechnology in different fields, glasses are increasingly being considered for the production of nanostructures.

Production of waveguides in photosensitive glasses with a femtosecond laser writing technique

Study of the mechanisms leading to the modification of refractive index in several types of IR glasses (ex. borates, chalcogenides)

Impact

Controlling the production of homogenous low-loss waveguides in infrared materials
