Paper Abstract

We have systematically designed, fabricated, and tested chalcogenide-glass waveguides. Among all the characterization techniques, we have found that the prism-coupling method is the most effective and accurate for determining all the parameters describing the performance of the slab waveguides. Furthermore, we have also achieved the end-fire coupling in these waveguides to study the characteristics of the transmitted beams. These waveguides can be optimized eventually for the biosensor applications.
