Paper Abstract

In this work simple fabrication techniques of polymeric optical waveguides and wavegiode elements toward low insertion loss are proposed and demonstrated. For single-mode propagation, light-induced self-written (LISW) optical waveguide is fabricated. For large core optical waveguide, hot-emboss technology is adopted for the formation of platform with fiber guide. Moreover, simultaneous formation of channel waveguide with 45° mirror based on the mold technology is also reported.
