Abstract
Very low loss waveguides were fabricated in glass by thermal ion exchange from a thin film of silver vacuum deposited on the substrate. Planar and channel guides were made both with and without an applied electric field. By measuring the mode, wavelength and thickness dependence of the loss the primary causes of loss in the guide were identified.
