25 July 1994 Critical issues in designing glass integrated optical circuits
Author Affiliations +
Different issues in design of passive integrated optics devices based on glass waveguide technologies are reviewed. The established fabrication technologies, ion exchange into substrate glasses, and deposited doped-silica waveguides on silicon wafers, are described in terms of waveguide engineering for differing needs. The status of various optical guided-wave propagation methods and tools are discussed. Design aspects for two most important categories of glass waveguide devices, M x N couplers and wavelength division demultiplexers/multiplexers, are considered. Particularly, designs with insensitivity to fabrication process tolerances and optical signal bandwidth and polarization state are emphasised. A brief look is also taken on design of complicated guided-wave circuits.
