Paper Abstract

A soda lime silicate glass, designed for waveguide fabrication by ion-exchange, was produced by melting. Two additional glasses were prepared by doping the base glass with different percentages of Er2O3 (2% and 3% weight, respectively). Spectroscopic analysis of the glass with higher Er concentration is reported, together with preliminary results of the characterization of the waveguides produced in the base glass as well as in the doped ones by ion exchange.
