Paper Abstract

Polymer thermooptic waveguide taps have a potential application as light routers for guided wave optical interconnects involving cascaded fanouts. The taps can guide light form an optical bus bar and direct it into other devices in a switching/modulation network. Thermooptic waveguide taps are designed and fabricated on silicon wafers using standard VLSI fabrication techniques. Coupling of light into an adjacent waveguide tap is observed to increase by 12.3 percent from 38.7 percent to 51.0 percent with the application of 34 mW of power.
