Paper Abstract

The methods of fabrication of some (mono and multimodal) proton-exchanged stripe LiNbO3 waveguides are described, made on the X-cut substrates. An increase in the diffusion coefficient of the H+ ions was established in the area of the stripe waveguides with respect to that found in the slab waveguides. The material was chosen for a metalic masking layer used in the photolitographic processes. The proper time limit was found for the ionic exchange in which the stripe monomodal waveguides are obtained of a thickness securing a minimum energy necessary as to reveal the cut-off switching effect. The topography of the stripe structures was investigated by the diffraction method. The latter method is particularly suitable for the control of the aperture and deflection of the stripes from linearity as well as for the control of optical density of the waveguides themselves.
