Fabrication and Demonstration of a Pure Silica-Core Waveguide Utilizing a Density-Based Index Contrast


We investigate a novel approach for creating dopant-free pure silica-core waveguides (PSCW). Stoichiometric silica films form both the cladding and core material for channel waveguides, with the index contrast generated by a difference in density.
