ABSTRACT
We report on the fabrication of a microlens on a fused silica chip with excellent optical performance by femtosecond laser microfabrication. We show, both in theory and experimentally, that the fabricated microlens offers a high resolution approaching the optical diffraction limit. Moreover, two-photon excitation of fluorescence with the fabricated microlens is demonstrated. The lateral and axial resolutions of fluorescence are measured to be ∼1.7 and 12.3 μm, respectively.

    We report on two-photon-pumped stimulated emission (SE) from ZnO single crystal at low temperature. Under nanosecond pulse excitation, two-photon absorption induced SE with a threshold of 2.8 MW/cm2 is observed, which is ascribed to the inelastic exciton-exciton scattering. The mechanism of the...
