A two-step procedure is described where a photosensitive layer of doped PMMA is spin- coated on a glass substrate, exposed to a UV pattern, and, finally, covered in a second spin- coating procedure. The result is a thickness pattern that follows the UV image. The obtained waveguides are characterized with respect to their effective indices as a function of UV exposure and spinning speed. Simple elements like lenses or beam splitters are discussed.
