Abstract. Laser-induced modification of photosensitive glass-ceramic material under YAG:Nd second harmonic picosecond pulses is observed. A method for such modification based on laser processing and subsequent heat treatment is developed. Comparison with infrared femtosecond modification is performed.
Keywords: laser-induced modification, picosecond pulses, photosensitive glass-ceramic, Foturan.
