Paper Abstract

Optical interconnects to couple light from single mode fiber to waveguides and photonic elements have remained expensive due to tight alignment tolerances, materials choices, fabrication methods and assembly processing techniques. Methods that have been used to lower the cost of optical interconnects will be reviewed and compared to current and future market application demands. Design approaches, fabrication methodologies, and assembly processing techniques for optical interconnects to meet future lower cost market application demands will be shared.
