Abstract
Field assisted Ag+-Na+-exchange in a newly developed glass is investigated in order to optimize the refractive index profile to multimode fibres. Two methods are considered to match the refractive index profile to step-index (SI-)fibres and graded-index (GI-)fibres, respectively. The typical insertion loss of first samples of y-branches for 50 μm-GI-fibre for bidirectional operation is 4.6 dB including 3 dB splitting loss.
