In this paper, we demonstrate a thin-film polymeric waveguide beam deflector using a new device concept, an electrode of prism-array pattern on top of a three-layer planar waveguide. The three-layer planar waveguide was composed of UV15 as the top cladding layer, a polyimide as the core layer, and SiO2 as the bottom cladding layer on a silicon substrate. A gold layer was deposited on the top of the waveguide by e-beam deposition and then patterned into a prism-array as the heating electrode by photolithography.
