Waveguides based on methacrylate polymers containing active dinitrostilbene chromophores have been fabricated by photobleaching using a xenon lamp. The efficiency of photobleaching, as well as the effective refractive index changes obtainable, represent a singnificant improvement over currently used materials, single‐mode waveguides being formed with a optical loss of less than 1 dB cm−1.
