In this paper, the realization of hybrid Lithium Niobate-silicate glass waveguide is presented. A 300nm-thick ion-sliced lithium niobate thin film has been successfully reported on a glass substrate containing high refractive index strip created by a silver/sodium ion exchange. The obtained waveguides have been successfully characterized at a wavelength of 1.5 μm and showed a single mode behavior as well as a strong confinement. The use of such waveguides for electro-optic modulators or second harmonic generation is also discussed.
