Abstract

Changes in the refractive index of amorphous chalcogenide A 2 S 8 films upon ultraviolet (UV) exposure and annealing at different temperatures are investigated in detail, indicating an index contrast of the order of 10 2 in the A 2 S 8 channel waveguide. An As 2 S 8 channel waveguide is fabricated using UV well irradiation and then annealing near the glass transition temperature and shows a low propagation loss of 0.76 dB / cm and good propagation characterization at the 1310 nm guided mode.
