Paper Abstract

We report a refinement of a previously reported method' for measuring propagation losses in single-mode optical waveguides. The method as previously described applies to isotropic materials (glass); corrections are necessary when anisotropic materials, such as LiNb03, are used. This report describes the method and indicates two means for estimating the corrections for anisotropic materials.
