Paper Abstract

Polymer waveguides are successfully fabricated by a simple method, which is incorporated with a lithography-galvanic (LIGA)-like and micromolding process. The refractive index of the UV polymer used in these experiments is changed by an extremely low electric field. The measured propagation loss is 0.32 dB/cm for 1.3 µm and 0.30 dB/cm for 1.55 µm. This process is easy, simple, and suitable for mass production.
