Abstract

A new instrument for measuring the evolution of index profiles during diffusion in hot (500°C) glass is presented. This instrument, called the oven interferometer, has a spatial resolution of 10 μm at 0.6471 μm and a phase resolution of λ/50. The development of index profiles with both time-dependent and constant boundary conditions is shown.
