ABSTRACT
We demonstrate UV poling of a pure fused silica sample by applying to it an electric field of 200 kV/cm and irradiating it with high-intensity (∼40 GW/cm2) femtosecond (220 fs) laser pulses at 264 nm.

    Abstract. Doped and undoped silica samples were fabricated using the sol--gel method. Extended UV transmission down to 200 nm was observed for the undoped sol--gel silica. Three UV dyes (PTP, Exalite 351, and PBD) were used to dope sol--gel silica by diffusion. Lasing and fluorescence properties...
