This research project focuses on the use of Laser Induced Forward Transfer (LIFT) in amorphous materials of high optical nonlinearities. Traditionally, LIFT has been employed in metals and some polymers aiming applications in microelectronics. The utilization of this technique for vitreous systems is interesting for the development of photonic devices, especially those involving nonlinear optical processes. An important point of the project is that the LIFT will be used with femtosecond laser, which allows 1) to increase the resolution of the deposited structures due to multiphoton absorption effect and 2) to maintain the properties of the source material by minimizing thermal effects. Fs-LIFT is an important alternative for femtosecond laser micromachining due to the versatility of materials that can be investigated and the capability to produce devices on the nanometer scale.
