Paper Abstract

Polymeric optical planar waveguide devices such as optical switches, optical arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) multiplexer/demultiplexer, optical add/drop multiplexer are promising for both of optical WDM networks and access network. For investigating such polymer devices, new polymeric waveguide materials were developed and different polymer integrated optical devices including interferometric-type optical switches, digital-optical switches (DOS), hybrid polymer/silica vertical coupler switches (VCS), polymer AWG multiplexer and athermal all- polymer AWG multiplexer have been studied.
