Silver–sodium ion-exchanged waveguides on Schott IOG-1 erbium–ytterbium-doped phosphate glass have been fabricated and characterized. Ion exchange by thermal diffusion from a ternary salt melt (AgNO3, NaNO3 and KNO3) has been carried out by varying the process parameters such as melt composition, temperature and diffusion time.

Abstract

Silver–sodium ion-exchanged waveguides on Schott IOG-1 erbium–ytterbium-doped phosphate glass have been fabricated and characterized. Ion exchange by thermal diffusion from a ternary salt melt (AgNO3, NaNO3 and KNO3) has been carried out by varying the process parameters such as melt composition, temperature and diffusion time. Guidelines are given to optimize the active waveguides for a full compatibility with standard single mode optical fibres.
