Paper Abstract

The usefulness of multilayer optical coatings for realization of waveguides is discussed. Such guides are used to study the origin of losses. In particular it is shown that a model taking into account transition absorbing layers gives good explanation of the dispersion of the measured losses during propagation for the different guided modes. On the other hand a multilayer structure which could be efficiently coupled to a single mode optical fiber is presented.
