# Wire Waveguides¶

These are fully etched strip waveguides, like a dielectric wire

 WireWaveguideTemplate Wire-like waveguide definition, with a core and a cladding.

## Transitions¶

The following transition can be used to make transition between two wire waveguides:

 WireWaveguideTransitionLinear A transition between two WireWaveguideTemplates. WireWaveguideTransitionFromPortLinear A linear transition between two WireWaveguideTemplates.

Note

You can also use the more generic class ipkiss3.pcell.photonics.transitions.linear.LinearWindowWaveguideTransition for the same purpose. WireWaveguideTransitionLinear adds the restriction such that only the correct waveguide templates can be used (WireWaveguideTemplates).
