Paper Abstract

The use of conventional fabrication techniques for the fabrication of polymer based photonic integrated waveguide circuits is a necessary step to reduce costs. The replication of rib waveguides is presented using nickel shims. Results of replicated waveguides and 1 x 2 multimode interference (MMI) couplers are shown.
