A waveguide that usually (a) is a thin-film slab dielectric waveguide, (b) is about one micron (1 μm) to about ten microns (10 μm) thick, and (c) has a graded refractive-index profile that is made by controlling the diffusion of dopants during its construction. See also control, dielectric, dielectric waveguide, diffusion, dopant, graded refractive-index profile, micron, refractive index, slab dielectric waveguide, thin film, thin-film waveguide, waveguide.
