Paper Abstract

We have demonstrated the fabrication and characterization of polymer- based optical waveguides. Reported here is a fabrication technique for polymeric channel waveguides with the inverted-rib structure. The waveguide is consisted of a polymer film spin-coated on the SiO2/Si substrate, in which channel grooves are pre-patterned to provide lateral optical confinement. Moreover, modal characteristics of the waveguides for a TE-polarized light source at 632.8 nm are also calculated and measured for comparison using the Galerkin's method and the Laser beam analyzer, respectively.
