Abstract

Accurate knowledge of the diffusion coefficients of an ion-exchange glass is crucial for the design, simulation, and optimization of optical waveguide structures created in the glass. We present the measurement of the Stewart coefficient, the maximum refractive index, and the diffusion coefficients for Ag+ and Na+ ions in IOG-10 glass. With knowledge of these glass properties, we can in turn control the optical and physical properties of the waveguides. Temperature dependence of the optical properties is also presented.
