Paper Abstract

In this article we present a new micromachined platform for coupling the optical fibers to waveguides of Mach-Zehnder interferometers, supporting fibers in the same wafer as a waveguide wafer. Using standard CMOS technologies, like a UV photolithography, KOH wet etching of Si(100) wafer, sputtering of metal layers, RIE etching the fabrication of a very precise platform is demonstrated.
