Paper Abstract

The WKB relation and mode indices measurement have been used to determine the important surface index change and effective depth of planar K+-ion exchanged waveguides in soda-lime glass at 1.152 and 1.523 mm for any given set of fabrication temperature and time, whereas the substrate index can be determined by a multi-layer Brewster angle measurement. The data obtained are important in the design and fabrication of K+-ion exchanged waveguides in single-mode fiber systems at 1.3 and 1.55 pm.
