Paper Abstract

This paper presents the latest progress toward fully embedded board level optical interconnects in the aspect of optical bus architecture design, waveguide fabrication and device integration. A bidirectional optical bus architecture is designed and can be fabricated by a one-step pattern transfer method, which can form a large cross section multimode waveguide array with 45° micro-mirrors by silicon hard molding method. The waveguide propagation loss is reduced to 0.09dB/cm and the coupling efficiency of the metal-coated reflecting mirror is experimentally measured to be 85%. The active optoelectronic devices, vertical surface emitter lasers and p-i-n photodiodes, are integrated with the mirror-ended waveguide array, and successfully demonstrate a 10 Gbps signal transmission over the embeddable optical layer.
