Paper Abstract

Surfaces of PMMA [poly-(methyl-meth-acrylate)] have been modified by two methods of ionizing radiation: ion beam induced polymer structure formation (IBIPS) and light induced polymer structure formation (LIPS). Mask construction is described. Strip waveguides, branches and star couplers were generated. A method of fiber-chip coupling by etched V-grooves in silicon wafers is reported.
