Paper Abstract

An apparatus based on guided waves and photothermal techniques permits to measure attenuation coefficients in multilayer waveguides produced by I.A.D. and Ion Plating. Zero- order modes are used to obtain accurate values of extinction coefficients of TiO2 and Ta2O5 thin-film materials at wavelength 514.5 nm. On the other hand, higher-order modes reveal strong loss anomalies that are analyzed via electromagnetic theories of scattering and absorption, both including surface and bulk effects.
