Paper Abstract

We report the fabrication of tilted gratings on polyimide waveguides. The reported gratings provide an effective unidirectional surface-normal optical couple-in and couple- out for polymer-based optoelectronic interconnects. Such a planarized grating is particularly suitable for wafer-scale MCM optoelectronic interconnects due to its unique non- blocking fanout feature. both surface-normal input and output grating couplers have been demonstrated for the first time on polyimide waveguides on silicon substrate.
