Paper Abstract

There is a growing interest in applying polymers for integrated optics. ARROW waveguides basing on the Fabry-Perot effect exhibit a number of outstanding features compared with conventional waveguides. The theoretical ARROW concept based on leaky waves is discussed. Planar ARROWs realized in a polymer multilayer system by simple technologies have low loss (0.39 dB/cm) and can be made well-matching to a fiber field. Lateral confinement by ARROW-effect has been demonstrated experimentally.
