This book introduces the fundamental mechanism of photonic glasses - the linear and nonlinear optical effects in glass under intense light irradiation: phot-induced absorption, refraction, polarization, frequency, coherence and monochromaticity changes. Emphasis is placed on new developments in the structure, spectroscopy and physics of new glassy materials for photonics applications, such as optical communication, optical data storage, new lasers and new photonic components and devices. The book presents the research results of the authors in new glasses for photonics over the last decade.


From Optical Glass to Photonic Glass; Structure and Properties of Amorphous Thin Films for Optical Data Storage; New Development in Optics and Spectroscopy of Rare Earth Ions Doped Glasses; Third-Order Optical Nonlinear Properties of Glasses; Second Order Optical Nonlinear Properties of Glasses; Glass Fibers for Optical Amplification; Glass Fibers for High Power Lasers; Hybrid Organic-Inorganic Solid-State Dye Laser Glasses; Optical Glass Waveguides; Glass Photosensitivity and Fiber Gratings; Glass Fibers for Photonic Crystals; Functional Microstructures in Glass Induced by a Femtosecond Laser.
