Paper Abstract

A high electric field technique was developed to fabricate buried optical waveguide modulator on K9 optical glass. The 80V voltage was applied on the glass to accelerate the field-driven ion exchange process by expeditiously replacing host sodium ions in the glass with silver ions. As a result, the optical loss for optical waveguide modulator was measured using the edge coupling technique with a 0.6328μm He-Ne laser. Loss of 0.20 dB/cm was obtained for channel waveguides of 25μm in depth, relatively low for waveguides of such depth at red wavelength.
