Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Etchless photodefined polymer optical waveguides are created through direct-write lithography and commercially available materials. Bypassing wet development provides benefits to optical chip-to-chip devices. At 1550nm telecommunication wavelengths, optical propagation loss is less than 1 dB/cm.
