Paper Abstract

We introduce a fully embedded board level guided-wave optical interconnects for short range optical interconnects. The realization of the fully embedded optical interconnects is achieved by overcome several difficulties such as thermal management of a VCSEL, thin film VCSEL fabrication, effective coupling and materials selection. A novel heat sink structure for cooling is developed to solve thermal management. We fabricated 10micron-thick linear VCSEL arrays and MSM detector array. As a physical layer, flexible optical interconnection layer incorporated with channel waveguides and 45° waveguide mirror couplers are also fabricated using compression molding technique.
