Abstract

Glass ion exchange is an attractive method for fabricating integrated optical components. We investigate the feasibility of making a single-mode glass ion-exchanged interferometer designed especially to obtain an interference pattern. The design of the interferometer is based on the use of tapered waveguides to obtain a collimated beam. This interferometer could be used as a chemical or biological sensor.
