Paper Abstract

We have developed "tapered self-written waveguide (SWW)" for coupling of optical components in the board level optical interconnection. Tapered waveguides have a possibility of achieving larger alignment tolerance for optical coupling. The fabrication condition of tapered SWW was studied by adjusting both the optical power and irradiation time of curing resin, and tapered SWW was successfully realized. The optical tolerance vertical to the optical axis twice as compared with straight SWW was obtained.
