Photo-Thermo-Refractive Glasses for Advanced Laser Applications

Photo-thermo-refractive (PTR) glass is a multicomponent silicate glass that shows permanent refractive index change after exposure to near UV radiation followed by thermal treatment. This feature enables fabrication of highly efficient and stable holographic optical elements that produce complex spectral and spatial operations with optical beams. These passive glass elements enable dramatic increases of brightness of lasers and resolution of spectrometers.
