Abstract

We report on the fabrication and characterization of optical-stripe waveguides in neodymium-doped calcium barium niobate (Nd:CBN) crystals by using He ion implantation assisted with a mask. The guided-mode profiles are successfully modeled through numerical simulations. After annealing at 200°C for 30min, the waveguide propagation loss could be reduced down to 3dBcm. Room-temperature microluminescence and micro-Raman investigations reveal that the crystal bulk features are well preserved in the active volume of the waveguide, suggesting possible applications as integrated photonic devices.
