Paper Abstract

Polymer optical waveguide devices are getting popular for optical printed circuit board and/or home-network applications. In order to accelerate the development of polymer optical waveguide devices, evaluation of waveguide characteristics should be reliable and 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 conditions such as mode scrambler was investigated for reliable measurement for standardization.
