A technology for the integration of optical waveguides in a glass substrate through photolithography and ion exchange has been successfully developed. This technology is a very good candidate for the mass production of performant branching devices such as couplers and Wavelength Division Multiplexers (WDM's). A description of the process and the results achieved on optical components are given. The advantages of the technology are discussed and the status about its industrial implementation is given.
