Paper Abstract

The work presents the interference of modes which have the same polarization states with respect to two successive orders (TE0, TE1) in the planar waveguide obtained with the use of the ion exchange technique K+- Na+ in the base plate made of glass BK-7. The changes of the refractive index of the waveguide cover result in the changes of phase differences between the guided modes, which in turn brings about a different distribution of light intensity at the end of the waveguide.
