Abstract
We have developed several novel polymer materials for optical waveguides. In the first part of this paper, we described two examples of our developed materials, one is low loss optical waveguide materials for optical communications at near infrared wavelength region, the other is low loss and high heat resistant materials for optical interconnections in the electronic devices at around 850 nm wavelength region, which can resist to the lead-free solder reflowing process. In the second part, we demonstrated two kinds of novel low cost polymer coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) devices, one is the polymer arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) device and the other is the polymer CWDM device using the polymer diffraction grating. The structures and performances of these devices were described in detail.
