Abstract
The progress in fabrication of rare-earth doped glass waveguides using two different techniques, ion exchange in a doped glass and sol-gel processing, is reported. A study of the effect of postbake on the coupling efficiency of the pump beam in silver ion-exchanged waveguides made in a commercially available neodymium-doped silicate glass is presented. Upconversion is reported for the first time in a silver ion-exchanged phosphate glass waveguide. A new ion-exchanged glass fabrication process in conjunction with rare-earth-doped sol-gel layers is proposed.
