Paper Abstract

The aim of the experimental study reported here, was to investigate the possibilities offered by the DMPE technique for the fabrication of monomode optical waveguides, to be used for the realization of acousto-optic devices. It was found that the DMPE process induces an efficient coupling mechanism between the "TE" guided and the "TM" not guided optical radiation. A modified fabrication process is proposed to overcome this problem and produ-ces a very interesting monomode optical waveguide at 830 nm.
