    We have designed a structure for a 2x2 silica-based optical waveguide switch that is based on a thermocapillarity effect. This switch can use the reflection walls on both sides of the slit, because the Goos-Ha¨nchen shift effect was taken into account when the structure of the waveguides and...

    The bombardment of silica by low-energy electrons induces compaction and an increase in refractive index. We have used this phenomenon, combined with photolithographic processing, to make channel waveguides in silica, most of which are monomode, with a depth of 2–7 μm, and peak index...

    We have investigated the writing of waveguides in bulk pure fused silica glass with femtosecond Ti:Sapphire laser at 1 kHz repetition rate. The photoinduced tracks were characterized in terms of writing geometry (parallel and perpendicular), pulse duration (45 fs, 140 fs, and 200 fs), pulse...

    The dependence of fluorine incorporation into silica glass on conditions of the optical waveguide blank manufacture using the method of modified chemical vapor deposition (MCVD) is studied. The degree of fluorine incorporation at constant consumption of a fluoridizer (SiF4) is shown to increase...

    We deposited pure SiO[sub 2] films with different refractive indices by pulsed-laser deposition with silicone targets. The refractive index of the films could be controlled by the deposition rate. Lowering of the deposition rate helped to make a dense film, showing higher refractive index. A...
