Abstract

We demonstrate a technique to generate accelerating Airy beams with a femtosecond laser-imprinted space variant birefringent structure in silica glass. Our approach enables the generation of dual Airy beams with polarization sensitive beam deflection. The produced beam is used for the glass scribing. After the glass-breaking process, a spontaneous self-detachment of a fiber-like structure occurs that can be exploited as an alternative way for fabricating glass cantilevers.
