Abstract
In this paper we describe the measurement of optical propagation losses in polymer waveguide structures. The fabrication of single mode waveguides using direct laser writing is also presented in the paper. Simulated and experimental results of coupling between two single mode waveguides at varying coupling length are also presented. Finally the concept of using a herringbone structure in a non destructive technique of loss measurement in waveguides is presented with simulation results.
