Paper Abstract

We describe the fabrication of low loss (= 0.2 dB) Ag+--Na+ exchanged glass optical waveguides using the novel electrolytic release tecnnique. Development of a concentration cell that can be used to measure the Ag+ ionic concentration in situ provides opportuniites for on-line concentration control. Since the siLver ion generation and control as well as the temperature can be adjusted electronically, the process may be computer controlled.
