Fabrication of Passive and Active Tellurite Thin Films and Waveguides for Integrated Optics
Pages 35

This chapter reviews the fabrication and properties of tellurite planar thin ilms and waveguides for integrated optics. The basic properties of tellurite are summarized, and then the various techniques used for thin-ilm and waveguide fabrication are detailed. The latest achievements in rare earth-doped, especially erbium-doped, tellurite waveguide devices are also discussed.
