Significant research results achieved under this investigation are Techniques for preparing laser heating strain-induced LHSI optical waveguides have been developed, and the properties of waveguides made with optical filter glass were obtained. A microprocessor-controlled LHSI optical waveguide circuit fabrication facility was constructed, and simple waveguide circuit elements were obtained. X-ray and optical measurement techniques were developed for the characterization of the photoelastic effect and the effect of optical polishing in selected integrated optic materials. Author
