Glass optical waveguides: a review of fabrication techniques

Paper Abstract

Glasses, either pure or suitably doped, constitute an excellent material for the development of integrated optical circuits. A brief review is presented of the most widely used processes for the fabrication of passive and active glass waveguides. Brilliant prospects of glass-based platforms for the development of photonic integrated circuits are outlined.
