Double heterostructure planar waveguides with an InGaAs/InP multiple quantum well (MQW) core and InP cladding layers were grown by atmospheric pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Ridge waveguides had a low propagation loss of 0.8 dB/cm for 1.52 μm input light. The indices of refraction for the guided TE and TM modes have been measured and the bulk dispersion curves of the MQW material for the 1.46-1.55 μm wavelength region were derived.
