Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We report the fabrication of photonics components designed for mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers based on photodarkening of thin-film chalcogenide glasses. We measure propagation losses of 0.5 dB/cm for single-mode waveguides and demonstrate evanescent wave couplers.
