Single-mode waveguides, well matched to the fiber spot size, have been fabricated by chemical etching of standard epitaxial silicon. Analytical estimations for the waveguide attenuation are given. Measured waveguide losses below 1.5 dB/cm have been obtained at both wavelengths, /spl lambda/=1.3 /spl mu/m and /spl lambda/=1.55 /spl mu/m.<<ETX>>
