The relation between the ordinary and extraordinary index profiles of ion-exchanged glass waveguides is investigated on the basis of the stress-optic law and the Clausius–Mossotti relation. For K+ exchange and Ag+ exchange, the experimental results are consistent with our analysis. The values of the coefficient that relates the ordinary and extraordinary index profiles are presented.
