Paper Abstract

A very useful technology for monomode waveguide production by etching SiO2 substrate material and covering it with organic polymeric materials is reported. An integrated dual-beam interferometer is presented which serves efficiently for electro-optical material parameter determination for polymers. An opto-optical beam scanner based on a grating coupler was realized. Output coupling angle modulation up to 0.1 rad was obtained by illuminating the grating with low intensity (2) laser radiation. A new waveguiding principle in which light is guided in a low refractive index region, a so called ARROW, was realized using polymer in combination with SiO2Si3N4.
