Abstract
We demonstrate high packing density true-time-delay lines using 3D integrated polymer waveguides. Although several relatively new delay-line approaches based on the use of optical fibers offer excellent performance, they require complicated, bulky, and costly packaging. The demonstrated 3D integrated polymer waveguide delay lines will overcome these shortcomings. Packaging is greatly simplified, and the layered integration of the waveguides offers greater compactness.
