Paper Abstract

Various components needed for optical backplane applications have been demonstrated from gelatin-based polymer integrated optic material. An array of waveguides have been realized with packaging density as high as 1250 channels/cm and loss of 0.1 dB/cm. A 1-to-8 Y- junction splitter and a 32 X 32 star coupler have been fabricated using photolithographic techniques. The unification of the star coupler and a modulator array for backplane optical interconnects are under investigation.
