The digital photographs of propagation lines of ion-exchange planar glass optical waveguides were taken by a common digital camera.According to the profile of light intensity of propagation lines,the attenuation curves were fitted and the propagation losses of the waveguides were calculated.The waveguides were treated by annealing process,and propagation losses properties were studied before and after annealing,respectively.The results show that the loss of waveguide increases with the mode.The loss in 0 mode decreases from 2.148 9 dB·cm－1 to 0.746 0 dB·cm－1.
