Paper Abstract

Development of a novel multifunctional acrylate based photo- polymer for photonic integration is presented. A 325 nm He:Cd laser has been used for direct writing of 50 micrometers square core multi-mode waveguides, compliant bumps for flip- chip bonding and 45 degrees total internal reflection mirrors for out of plane coupling. The transmission losses are measured to be 0.17 dB/cm at 850 nm and 0.5 dB/cm at 1300 nm by cutback method. Partially halogenated versions show losses around 1dB/cm at 1550 nm. DTA-TG analysis shows that this multifunctional acrylate co-polymer is thermally stable up to a temperature of 270 degrees C.
