Paper Abstract

Samples of PMMA (Poly-(Methyl-Meth-Acrylate)) in combination with various substrates have been modified by ionizing radiation in order generate regions of increased refractive index. These waveguiding structures were used to build passive devices such as Y-branches, couplers and Mach-Zehnder-interferometers. The refractive index and beam profil and the attenuation at different wavelengths of the generated waveguides were measured.
