I would like to thank several people who helped me conduct the research presented in this
dissertation. I would like to thank my predecessor, James Chan, for conducting the
background work upon which my research is built, and for showing me the basic lab
procedures required to continue his work. I would like to thank my fellow student,
Francisco Rafael Leon, who assisted me in designing and finding parts for my confocal
microscope system, and who could always be counted upon to come up with interesting,
entertaining distractions. I would like to thank my advisor, Denise M. Krol, for the
freedom she allowed me in guiding my own work, for her support in sending me to a
variety of conferences, for her trust in allowing me to form and manage my own research
collaborations, and for her assistance in crafting readable publications.
I would like to thank the various collaborators whose work contributed to almost every
aspect of my research. Christopher Smelser and Stephen Mihailov at the
Communications Research Centre Canada provided the fiber Bragg Gratings studied in
chapter 4. Eric Mazur, Rafael Gattass and Prissana Thamboon at Harvard University
provided the waveguides fabricated with 10 to 250 kHz repetition rate femtosecond lasers
studied in chapter 5. Lawrence Shah, Fumiyo Yoshino and Alan Arai at IMRA America,
Inc., and Shane Eaton and Peter Herman at the University of Toronto provided the
waveguides fabricated with a 1 MHz repetition rate femtosecond laser studied in
chapter 5. Alan deserves special thanks for his administrative negotiations, which
