Abstract

For certain applications, it is both necessary to have waveguide arrays that can be precisely positioned and be nonvolatile in an evacuated space. For this it is apparent that neither free standing glass fibers nor organic planar guides will serve the intended purpose. A solution is disclosed herein that comprises a method for producing planar waveguide arrays from glass.
