Paper Abstract

A method of preparation and deposition of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) thin film optical waveguides is presented. This method is devised to produce low loss optical waveguides. Since the processing conditions in the film deposition are crucial to minimizing the optical loss and since they affect the optical property of the films many different factors involved in this process will be identified and their effects on the resultant films will be explained. Finally the modal structures of some typical films will be analyzed and the resultant attenuation constant will be given. 1 .
