Paper Abstract

A manufacturing process was developed to reduce the cost of integrated optical components. The process uses a molding operation to form the optical waveguide pattern and dye diffusion process to form the high index region. Waveguide patterns with 5 micrometer lines have been formed in highly transparent thermoplastics.
