Abstract

Femtosecond lasers exhibit excellent capability in performing three-dimensional processing in transparent materials, especially glass, which makes them a powerful tool for micromachining optical fibers. Optical fiber is typically made of silica glass and functions as a waveguide, which is small in dimension; only slightly larger than that of a human hair. Thus, micromachining of optical fibers is difficult to ...
