Author(s): Jolly Xavier, Martin Boguslawski, Patrick Rose, Joby Joseph, Cornelia Denz


“Complex reconfigurable 3D photonic quasicrystals (PQCs) are fabricated in nonlinear photorefractive strontium barium niobate by an optical phase engineering-based single-step optical induction approach (see image). The approach demonstrates the embedded potential to use these structures as a reconfigurable platform for the investigation of advanced nonlinear light-matter interaction, or as templates fabricated in various photosensitive materials for photonic bandgap structures. ”
