Paper Abstract

Lateral ion-exchange, arising in the fabrication of waveguide elements by masking techniques, is modelized. The effective index method is used in order to analyze the effects on the light transmission when the side diffusion creates an effective graded index transition. Preliminary results are presented by using both a wave and geometrical approaches in the paraxial region. They show that the lateral ion-exchange modifies the paraxial parameters and it must be taken into account when the system's aberrations are corrected.
