Abstract: Investigations for space-selected structure ordering from nano-particles to single-crystal patterning in glasses will be described. Transparent crystallization in glass must be the best material solution to obtain novel functional glasses with a permanent second-order optical nonlinearity. We focus on the new functions created by structure ordering in glass by means of laser micro-fabrication for space-selected crystallization. Two topics in our recent experimental results of space-selected structure ordering in glass will be presented as follows: 1) Single crystalline patterning by atom heat laser processing in Sm-doped glasses for optical waveguides with second-order optical nonlinearity, 2) structure ordering of domains in crystallized glass fibers for possible photonic fiber-type devices with active signal processing.

Abstract: Tungsten trioxide films were deposited on the glass substrate by electric current heating method using tungsten wire in air. Applied voltages to the tungsten wire were increased at rates of 0.05, 0.5, 5 and 50 V/min. The resultant films consisted of particles. A particle size of the crystals increased with increasing voltage applying rate. The effects of an ultraviolet (UV) irradiation on the reflectance of the films were investigated. The reflectance in the wavelength range of 500 - 2500 nm decreased by the irradiation. When the films were left in dark after the irradiation, the reflectance returned to the initial. With increasing voltage applying rate, absorption peak shifted toward longer wavelength in the region of 1250 - 1500 nm and the peak intensity decreased.

Abstract: Aluminum nitride ceramics were sintered with 1.0 and 4.8 mass% Ca3Al2O6 (C3A) as a sintering additive. Temperature dependence of cathodoluminescence (CL) for the ceramics was investigated in order to obtain information on lattice defects. The CL peak intensity at 3.5 eV in the ceramics sintered with 1.0 mass% C3A decreased with increasing temperature, so called thermal quenching. The maximum CL peak intensity of the ceramics sintered with 4.8 mass% C3A was much lower than that with 1.0 mass% C3A, reflecting that the oxygen-induced defect density dramatically decreased with increasing amount of C3A. In case of the ceramics sintered with 4.8 mass% C3A, the CL peak intensity at 3.4 eV showed the thermal quenching in the range of 130 - 350 K, whereas in the range of 80 - 130 K and 350 - 475 K, it increased with increasing temperature, so called “negative” thermal quenching. From the results, we suggest a presence of at least two trapping levels in the ceramics sintered with C3A.

Abstract: Aluminum nitride (AlN) ceramics with various amounts of Ca3Al2O6 (C3A) as a sintering additive were sintered at 1880°C for 50 h in N2 atmosphere. The thermal conductivity of AlN ceramics increased with increasing amount of C3A in the range from 0.5 to 4.8 mass%. Cathodoluminescence (CL) intensity attributed to oxygen-induced defects decreased with increasing amount of C3A. From the results, the increase of the thermal conductivity was considered to relate to the decrease of the oxygen-induced defects by increasing amount of C3A.
