Paper Abstract

Copper-doped planar glass waveguides were prepared by the thermal ion-exchanged of commercial soda-lime glass wafers in molten mixture of CuSO4 with sodium sulfates at temperature of about 600°C. The effective indices were measured by means of prism-coupled technique, and the guided modes were not monotonic increasing with the ionexchange times. The properties of photoluminescence (PL) spectra of the waveguides were studied. The broad emission bands centered at around 520 nm (at the excitation wavelength of 310 nm, at the room temperature) were measured on the samples, which were also strongly influenced by the ion-exchange times and the intensity of the PL emission is not monotonic increasing with the ion-exchange times as well.
