Paper Abstract

We have fabricated channel waveguides from an optically nonlinear organic material, using an inverted rib structure. Guides consist of a planar layer of the optically nonlinear polymer spun on a glass substrate in which ion-exchanged channels provide lateral confinement. This paper discusses the design, fabrication, and optical properties of the composite waveguides.
