Abstract

In the framework of optical telecommunication systems, many functions are integrated on the same substrate. Nevertheless, one of the most important, such as isolation, is achieved using discrete components. It is based on magnetic materials which are always difficult to integrate with classical technologies. This is due to the annealing temperature of magnetic materials. In this paper we present another way for the realisation of such components. We use a dip coating process to report a magnetic nanoparticles doped silica layer on ion-exchanged glass waveguide. The advantages of this method is discussed and we demonstrate its compatibility with ion-exchanged technology. By varying the refractive index of the layer, we can adjust the interaction between the waveguide and the magneto-optical layer.
