Paper Abstract

Silica-on-silicon waveguiding components are of great importance in the construction of an all optical signal processing network. By using arsenosilicate glass (ASG) waveguides a tight optical confinement can be achieved thus allowing a high device packing density. This paper examines differences in waveguide curvature and reflow conditions then illustrates how they affect the device loss.
