Abstract

A method of manufacturing waveguides that are tapered in depth and formed by an electric field assisted ion exchange technique in glass is presented. The method relies on the creation of a nonuniform electric field distribution within the glass during the exchange process. This is achieved by creating a large number of narrow strip electrodes, which form… (More)
