Abstract

Single-mode optical rib waveguides operating at telecommunication wavelengths are successfully patterned via a hot embossing technique in a thermally evaporated chalcogenide glass thin film on a chalcogenide glass substrate. Ellipsometry is used to measure the refractive index dispersion of the pressed film ( As 40 Se 60 ) and substrate ( Ge 17 As 18 Se 65 ) .
