Paper Abstract

Fabrication processes of passive ion-exchanged glass waveguide components for optical interconnections are described. These processes are based on the use of either Ag thin-film sources or potassium ionic masking for Aq+-Na+ exchange with a molten salt source. Emphasis is put on the controllability and versatility of waveguide profiles.
