Paper Abstract

The sol-gel process is an interesting alternative for making glass integrated-optics components. Reasonable performance can be reached with low-cost fabrication. We show a one-step method for imprinting gratings on a thin layer made through the sol-gel process, thus enlarging the field of application in integrated optics to filters, out-ofplane connections, etc. The efficiency of the grating is studied through diffraction measures and computations.
