Paper Abstract

Fabrication of single-mode glass waveguide devices by ion exchange with ionic masking are studied. In channel waveguides, low losses (0.1 dB/cm) at 1.3 micrometers wavelength are measured. As a device example a nonsymmetric Mach-Zehnder interferometer at 1.55 micrometers wavelength region is demonstrated. A Y-branch wavelength multiplexer, in which 'tapered ionic masking' is utilized, is also described. Design of a 0.98 micrometers /1.55 micrometers wavelength multiplexer is presented.
