Paper Abstract

We report the first observation of modification of the surface-refractive index of sol-gel silica glasses for waveguide fabrication. Techniques for fabrication and measurements of attenuation and index change are reported. Preliminary results are encouraging showing the viabilitysof the sol-gel technology in integrated optical applications.
