Paper Abstract

The development of optical networks is effective and creates a need for passive components. Integrated optics techniques, with photolithography process, allow components with reproducible performances. Among integrated optics techniques, ion-exchange in glass is interesting and gives good results. The waveguides are obtained in a single step ion-exchange process, in a commercial glass, down to a depth of 8 μm, with a difference of refractive index of 0.007. The attenuation of the elementary guide is characterized by measuring the insertion loss in a line of fiber. The propagation loss of the guide is 0.15 dB/cm. Coupling losses are about 0.5 dB per fiber. The BPM (Beam Propagation Method) is used for designing the mask of a 16 ports splitter. The splitter is characterized with fibers at both the input and output sides. The 16 ports splitter presents excess loss of 4 dB.
