Gratings in indium oxide film overlayers on ion-exchanged waveguides by excimer laser micromachining
Pissadakis, S., Reekie, L., Zervas, M.N., Wilkinson, J.S. and Kiriakidis, G. (2001) Gratings in indium oxide film overlayers on ion-exchanged waveguides by excimer laser micromachining. Applied Physics Letters, 78, (6), 694-696. (doi:10.1063/1.1345836).
Relief Bragg gratings were imprinted by 248nm interferometric excimer laser ablation on potassium ion-exchanged channel waveguides in BK-7 glass overlaid with athin high-index InOx film. Using five pulses of energy density 60mJ/cm2, a spectral transmittance notch of depth 66% and Δλ < 0.1nm was obtained at 1547nm in the TE polarisation for a waveguide having a nominal width of 8μm and a 135nm thick InOx overlayer. In waveguides coated with 100nm InOx, with widths increasing from 3μm to 8μm, the reflection wavelength shifted by 0.12nm/μm and the reflectivity increased monotonically.
