Paper Abstract

The process of ion exchange in relation to the fabrication of low loss integrated optical waveguides on glass is reviewed. Issues relating the exchanging species, glass constituency used, and fabrication to the pertinent waveguide parameters such as numerical aperture and loss are discussed, and guidelines for producing high quality waveguides are outlined.
