Paper Abstract

Mode index measurements of slab waveguides fabricated by proton-exchange and annealed protonexchange in z-cut LINbO3 have been made. A Fermi function was found to accurately model the PE index profile resulting in a better agreement between the measured mode indices and the computed dispersion curves compared to the conventional step-index profile. In addition the effect of various fabrication parameters on the propagation characteristics of single mode annealed proton-exchanged waveguides is investigated in detail.
