Paper Abstract

Silver ion-exchange is used to make waveguides in neodymium-doped lithium-silicate glass. Refractive index change and diffusion coefficient due to ion-exchange are determined. It is observed that silver ion-exchange does not influence the emission wavelength of neodymium-doped glass. Fabrication procedure to achieve rare-earth waveguide lasers is discussed.
