25 February 1993 Photonic polymers in passive and active waveguide devices
Author Affiliations +
The performance and processing of passive and active polymeric integrated optic devices are described. Results obtained with several processed batches are compared, to evaluate the reproducibility of devices realized using polymer technology. The wafer-to-wafer differences in electro-optic switching properties were less than 10% for routinely fabricated devices, despite of the partially manual production process. Also, the stability of electro-optic polymers has been evaluated, both intrinsically and in devices. Using new polymers, with higher glass- transition temperatures, devices with long term stabilities up to at least 100 degree(s)C are expected in due time.
