Thanks to its unique properties, glass plays a fundamental role in science and technology, especially in optics and photonics. On the occasion of the International Year of Glass, we would like to discuss a powerful microfabrication technique for devices in this material: femtosecond laser micromachining (FLM). The purpose of this review article is to celebrate the multidisciplinary nature of FLM by discussing, without claim for completeness and after a brief introduction about the process, a selection of its applications in the diverse fields of biology, strong-field physics, and astronomy.
