Paper Abstract

We report the design and formation of a high-performance polymer waveguide array with 45-degree micro-mirror couplers for achieving fully-embedded board-level optoelectronic interconnects. We have used Si CMOS process compatible polymer as the fabrication material, which is relatively easy to process and has low propagation loss at 850 nm wavelength. 45-degree total interior reflection micro-mirror couplers fabricated within the channel waveguides provide surface-normal light coupling between the waveguide and the optoelectronic devices, thus forming a fully-embedded 3D optoelectronic interconnect. We have demonstrated a hybrid optoelectronic integrated system of GaAs MSM photodetector array and polymer channel waveguide array with 45-degree micro-mirror couplers, showing an aggregate 3 dB bandwidth of 32 GHz.
