Paper Abstract

A generalized Gaussian function was used to accurately model the refractive-index profile of planar optical waveguides in z-cut LiNbOz fabricated by the annealed proton-exchange technique. The computed waveguide parameters were empirically correlated to the wide range of fabrication conditions through the use of a general power law. In addition, the validity of the conventional simple diffusion annealing model is investigated in detail
