Paper Abstract

The fabrication procedure and properties of optical nonlinear guided-wave structures are reported. The structures consist of a thin film of Corning 7059 glass deposited by RF planar magnetron sputtering on a surface of CdSxSe1-x doped glass. The coupling of light into the waveguides characterized by a power dependent propagation constant was studied. The experiments were performed at two wavelengths λ= 0.4880 μm and λ= 0.5145 μm with a laser working in cw and mode-locked regimes of operation. It is shown that integrated optical structures fabricated exhibit strong nonlinear effect with subnanosecond response time.
