25 February 1981 Modal Fields And Curvature Losses In Ti-diffused LiNbO3 Waveguides
Author Affiliations +
An accurate empirical model of the fundamental modal field distribution of straight and curved indiffused channel waveguides is presented and used to theoretically determine the losses associated with directional changes in the axes of indiffused waveguides. Particularly, the theoretical results are compared to experiment for Ti-diffused LiNbO3 waveguides that are single mode at 0.63 µm. Excellent agreement between the measurements and predictions are observed.
