Abstract
We have developed a material system, a fabrication process, and optical designs that allow for direct integration of patternable optical components onto microelectronics and optoelectronics platforms. The spin-on-glass is a sol-gel platform that has a low waveguide loss with the ability to incorporate a waveguide amplifier. Our material and process includes the ability to fabricate 3-D structures in a single photolithography step. In this paper, we present details of our fabrication process, general materials characteristics, and some optical designs for planar lightwave circuit platforms.
