We present results on laser treatments for manipulating the core structure as well as the glass cladding. More specifically, using quasi-CW 10.6-m radiation, the clad glass can be softened and the core can be controllably melted. This is shown to permit tapering, localized formation of optical resonators, and stress modification of the as-drawn fiber and structures within it. Shown for the first time to the authors' knowledge are Bragg gratings written by modification of the silicon/glass interface using fs laser illumination at 517 nm. The cores of these fibers show stress alterations, with indications of quasi-periodic stress relief in the glass.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/10114||ISSN:||21593930||Rights:||© 2017 Optical Society of America.||Type:||Article|
