Abstract
We demonstrate a polymer waveguide-based thermo-optic variable optical attenuator array with 30dB dynamic range that requires less than 20mW of drive power to achieve 30dB of attenuation. The design offers low insertion loss and low polarization dependent loss. We also present simulation results that show good agreement with measured data and which thus permit to optimize the device performance.
