Paper Abstract

Photobleaching was used for the fabrication of electro-optic polymer microrings resonators. All the device parameters were theoretically optimized. The photobleaching mask was made using e-beam lithography. UV exposure through the mask defined the pattern in the polymer by an irreversible change of the material properties and decrease of the refractive index. Waveguide coupled microring resonators have shown 15 dB resonance contrast and low total insertion loss of 9 dB, most of which was mainly due to fiber coupling in and out of the chip.
