25 July 1994 Ion-exchange process for glass waveguide fabrication
Author Affiliations +
Ion-exchange is a relatively mature technology for the production of optical waveguides in glass substrates, and it appears as the most convenient approach to the development of a number of passive integrated optical devices, due to the low loss and process robustness. The purpose of this paper is to give a quick overview of the status of this technology, with particular attention devoted to the problems of manufacturing tolerances and of fabrication and characterization reproducibility.
