Abstract: The interaction of optical ceramics based on wide-bandgap crystals with near-IR femtosecond laser radiation is studied experimentally. The formation of luminescent centres in LiF and MgF2 ceramics under the action of single laser pulses is considered. Two interaction regimes are used. In the regime of low-aperture focusing of laser radiation (800 nm, 30 fs, 0.3 mJ), multiple selffocusing and filamentation in the samples are observed. The luminescent centres are formed in thin channels induced by light filaments. The average effective self-focusing length is ≈100 μm; the formation of luminescent centres begins at this length and ceases at a wavelength of about 380 mm. The luminescent trace (spur) induced by a single laser filament was ≈30 μm long and 1.3 μm in diameter. The second regime of light interaction with the sample was based on high-aperture focusing with a simultaneous decrease in the laser pulse energy. This led to the formation of single pits with a diameter smaller than the optical diffraction limit. The luminescent centres induced by the laser radiation were aggregated colour centres. The mechanism of their creation included the highly-nonlinear generation of electron – hole pairs in the filamentation region, their recombination with the formation of anion excitons and the decay of excitons into Fresnel defects by the Lushchik–Vitol–Hersh–Pooley mechanism, as well as their recharging, migration and aggregation.

Keywords: ceramics, luminescence, femtosecond pulse, filamentation, self-focusing, colour centres, information pit.
