Paper Abstract

Cs4-ion-exchange in glass is compared with the commonly used K+-, Ag+- and T1+-ion-exchange in glass in the process of waveguide fabrication. It will be shown that the Cs4-ion-exchange in the special substrate glass BGG21 represents an alternative method. As in the case of Ag+ AND T14 it is possible to fabricate buried waveguides by a double ion-exchange. The field-assisted ion-exchange is preferred due to the low CO+-ion mobility.
