  • Patent number: 11365147
    Abstract: An optical component with improved degradation resistance is provided. The optical component includes an optical material and a coating. The optical material has a native surface that is susceptible to degradation processes. The coating is a layer of an inorganic material and is applied so as to be substantially contiguous so that there are no continuous paths between fluid surrounding the optical component and the optical material.

  • Publication number: 20220176494
    Abstract: A method of structuring a glass element having a first side face and a second side face is provided. The method includes the steps of: producing a filament-shaped flaw in the glass element with a pulsed laser beam along a focus line; etching to remove glass in the filament-shaped flaw to form a wall extending from the first side face towards the second side face, the wall having a boundary line that is tapered at a vertex between the wall and the first side face with a taper angle with respect to a perpendicular of the first side face; and adjusting the taper angle by controlling a feature of the focus line. The feature is selected from a group consisting of a position of the focus line, a length of the focus line, an intensity distribution of the focus line, and any combinations thereof.
