We report the successful fabrication of a low-loss near-IR waveguide in polycrystalline ZnSe using ultrafast laser inscription. The waveguide, which was inscribed using the multiscan fabrication technique, supported a well- confined mode at . Propagation losses were characterized at using the Fabry–Perot technique and found to be .
