The refractive index changes of disordered superlattice waveguides were measured and evaluated. A GaInAs/InP superlattice structure grown by gas-source molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) was disordered by the Si/sub 3/N/sub 4/ cap annealing method. The measurement of the wavelength response of a Bragg grating waveguide shows that the refractive indexes of the disordered region vary gradually in accordance with the development of partial disordering. Maximum refractive index changes were -1.1*10/sup -2/ for the transverse electric mode and +6.7*10/sup -3/ for the transverse magnetic mode at 1.5 mu m wavelength.<>
