In this paper, the proposed polymer waveguides based on silicon optical bench (SiOB) including a Si-based 45° microreflector and multi-channel polymer waveguides at cross-sectional dimension of 40 × 20 μm2 is demonstrated. The proposed 45° micro-reflector is fabricated on an orientation-defined (100) silicon substrate by using the anisotropic wetetching process. The optical performance of polymer waveguides with the propagation loss of -0.35 dB/cm and the insertion loss of -2.5 dB for the SiOB-based bending structure with polymer waveguides has been experimented. The multi-channels polymer waveguides based on the SiOB would be applied for the chip-to-chip optical interconnect.
