Abstract
We show that femtosecond laser enables us to produce true three-dimensional (3-D) microstructures embedded in a photosensitive glass, which has superior properties on transparency, hardness, chemical and thermal resistances. After exposure of the focused laser beam, the latent images are written. Modified regions are developed by a post baking process and then preferentially etched away in dilute solution of hydrofluoric (HF) acid solution in an ultrasonic bath at room temperature. The contrast ratio in etching selectivity is examined for different concentration of HF solution. Based on this result, a freely movable microplate which has a function of microvalve in the microreactor is fabricated inside the glass.
