Paper Abstract

Low-cost robust optical interconnections interfacing solid state components, functional optical circuitry and optical fibers are increasingly needed to facilitate deployment of high capacity optical communication systems. Polymeric waveguide based optical circuits are being increasingly considered for these interconnect applications. Many applications are in development or early commercial stages. Some of these are highlighted in the presentation to provide a review of promising polymer based applications and technologies. In particular, PolyguideTM polymeric integrated optic waveguide technology, currently being applied in the ARPA funded POLO and POINT programs is covered in more detail. These programs are focused on high speed optical data links and optical circuit board technology respectively.
