Paper Abstract

An optical fiber array interconnection substrate for computer applications was dgveloped based around a photomachinable glass-ceramic material having the trade name Fotofore% Devices incorporating up to 32 fibers on a single chip were shown to be possible, and the material was demonstrated to be patternable with accuracies approaching single crystal silicon. The glass-ceramic material has several advantages over silicon in that it is less brittle, can be easily loaded with fibers, and can be assembled using UV curable epoxies.
