Abstract

The feasibility of constructing graded-index (GRIN) Polymer Microstructure Waveguides (PMSWs) on various substrate surfaces, including semiconductors, conductors, insulators, and ceramics, has been consistently proven. The PMSW formed by Physical Optics Corporation (PÖC) is at least one to two orders of magnitude larger than those constructed by the state-of-the-art microstructure formation systems such as MOCVD and MBE. The polymer material used possess a large dynamic range of temperature stability (from -180°C to +200°C) and wide transmission bandwidth (from 0.3 μm to 2.7 μm wavelengths). Local sensitization technique applied to PMSW has also been introduced to facilitate the formation of planar multiplexed holographic gratings for single wavelength 1-to-many fanouts and wavelength division (de)multiplexing (WD(D)M). Realization of such technology is useful for optical interconnection, signal processing and communication.
