Paper Abstract

The various techniques that have been used to fabricate waveguides in GaAs/GaAkAs are reviewed; including p-n junction, carrier-concentration-reduction, heteroepitaxial growth, and strip-loading methods. The results of this survey show that it is possible to produce waveguides in GaAs/GaAkAs with losses less than 2 dB/cm for wavelengths ranging from 1.06 to 10.6μm. In some cases losses as low as 1 dB/cm have been observed.
