Paper Abstract

The design procedure is described of integrated optical switches to be fabricated by inserting a liquid-ciystal cell into a glass planar waveguide. Two configurations are analysed, corresponding to ON-OFF and OFF-ON operation, respectively. Preliminary experimental data on the waveguide characteristics and device fabrication process are also presented.
