Abstract
The simulation model presented yields the properties of ion-exchanged waveguides in glass in a very close approximation. The manufacturing process is a double thermal ion exchange in the glass BGG31, which was developed especially for the sodium/silver ion exchange. The resulting waveguides have several advantages compared to waveguides in other materials, for example, a low birefringence and low intrinsic losses; due to the flexibility of the process, the mode field can be matched to different types of fibers.
