High Quality Polishing Procedure of Glass Substrates: Application in Integrated Optics
A procedure to polish the edges of glass microscope slides (corning 2947B) for integrated optics is presented in this paper. As usual, the procedure includes six steps: cut of glass substrates, assembly of the glass substrates over a plane surface (blocking), grinding, polishing, disassembly (unblocking) and cleaning. It is possible to fabricate waveguides before or after the polishing procedure. Finally, the outcomes of a practical application are shown. In our opinion, the manufacture of integrated optics devices will increase gradually.
