Paper Abstract

Simple fabrication techniques of polymeric optical waveguides and waveguide elements toward low insertion loss are demonstrated. Serially-grafted waveguides with active layer such as electro-optic polymer and passive layer such as transparent polymer was fabricated using softlithography as well as photo-bleaching. Single-mode waveguide was fabricated using light-induced self-written (LISW) optical waveguide.. For large core optical waveguide, replication technology is adopted for the formation of a platform with a fiber guide.
