Abstract : Accurate measurements of the refractive index, the thickness, the propagation velocity and the transmission losses of sputtered glass (Corning 7059) waveguides were made. The results of this program establish a comprehensive characterization of thin film optical waveguides made of glass and useful for applications in integrated optical circuits. (Author)
