Paper Abstract

Integrated optical devices including rare earth ions are attracting an increasing attention. We designed and developed a soda-lime silicate glass matrix, suitable for ion-exchange, and we doped it with different percentages of Er2O3 and Yb2-O3. Optical waveguides have then been produced by diluted silver ion exchange. Here we report on their optical characterization, which has been performed by m-line spectroscopy as well by absorption, FTIR and Raman spectroscopy.
