Abstract

Utilizing a recently developed two-step fabrication process, we have experimentally demonstrated what is to the best of our knowledge the first ever integrated antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide (ARROW), directly inscribed into bulk optical glass. The waveguide consists of an array of high-index contrast rods that surround an unmodified core. The transmission spectrum reveals the formation of discrete bandgaps that can be tuned by varying the diameter of the individual rods.
