Paper Abstract

Polymer optical waveguide devices are getting popular for next generation FTTH application. In order to accelerate the development of polymer optical devices, evaluation of waveguide characteristics should be speeded up. Polymer optical chip containing a combination of 45°-angled cut waveguide, Y-splitter and S-bend structures was designed and fabricated for simple evaluation of multimode waveguides. Input launching such as light source, mode scrambler was investigated for reliable measurement.
