KTP planar optical waveguide was fabricated by combining He<sup>+</sup>ion implantation with Rb-K ion exchange in pure RbNO<sup>3</sup>. The refractive index profiles in the novel waveguide were reconstructed by analyzing dark mode spectra. The influence of irradiation damage on the Rb distribution was investigated by means of RBS technique.
