Paper Abstract

The paper presents the possibility of forming refractive index profiles in planar waveguides produced by ion exchange method in soda-lime glass - Ag+ admixture arrangement. The influence of refractive profile shape on modal attenuation distribution was analysed. Diffusion and heating processes were considered in all the calculations. Numerical simulations of processes were based on experimentally gained thermal diffusion coefficients of exchanged ions.
