Femtosecond Laser Irradiation followed by Chemical Etching (FLICE) is a powerful technique for prototyping three-dimensional structures in glass. Here we show that it is possible to apply FLICE also to a commercial alumino-borosilicate glass, where very complex and low-loss photonic circuitry has been demonstrated recently. As a test for the technique, we realize an optofluidic device composed of a microchannel and two intersecting optical waveguides.
