Paper Abstract

GaAs planar channel waveguides are fabricated with diffused boundaries using a zinc-doped spin-on-glass source. Low-loss (� 1.9 dB/cm) single-mode waveguides are achieved. Modal properties of the waveguides are experimentally investigated. A simple model is used to analyse the waveguides.
