MCVD planar substrates for UV-written waveguide devices

Webb, A.S., Adikan, F.R.M., Sahu, J.K., Standish, Rob, Gawith, Corin, Gates, James, Smith, Peter G.R. and Payne, D.N. (2007) MCVD planar substrates for UV-written waveguide devices Electronics Letters, 43, (9), pp. 517-519. (doi:10.1049/el:20070281).

Record type: Article


A method for fabricating planar silica substrates via modified chemical vapour deposition (MCVD) and a modified fibre drawing technique is presented. Long lengths of planar material are generated from a single substrate offering a potentially low-cost alternative to existing planar substrate deposition processes. Buried straight and splitting waveguide channels, as well as Bragg gratings, are inscribed in the planar material using direct UV-writing technology, and the results are reported.
