Paper Abstract

Multimode optical waveguides have been fabricated by dispensing photopolymers onto various substrates using direct-write technologies. Fine-tuning is achieved by micromachining the waveguides using a femtosecond-regime pulsed laser. Propagation losses are determined using the cutback method. A 2 × 2 coupler and a 1 × 8 splitter are demonstrated.
