Abstract
After several years of research in the laboratories, glass integrated optics is now emerging as an area with industrial relevance, and several devices are already available commercially. Silica-on-silicon integrated optical circuits are particularly attractive, as they represent a key technology for the development of both the passive and the active optical components required for the next generation of fiber optic communication systems. Great expectancy exists for all-optical devices that exploit the nonlinear optical properties of novel glasses or glass-based composite materials. This paper reviews recent progress on glass integrated optics, with particular focus on semiconductor-doped and rare-earth-doped glasses.
