Paper Abstract

Polymeric materials suitable for the formation of both passive and electro-optically active waveguide devices have been produced. We have developed methods for delineating channel waveguides in thin polymer films via a photopatteming technique. A description of the performance characteristics of devices incorporating these materials will be presented. An analysis of the advantages and drawbacks of polymeric systems will also be included.
