Paper Abstract

Buried planar optical waveguides made by a purely thermal back-diffusion K+-Na+ ion-exchange process have been demonstrated, for the first time, on soda-lime glass substrates. The potassium ion concentration profile was determined using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) technique which was then correlated to the numerical simulation of the ion-exchange fabrication process.
