Abstract

Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) offers an attractive means to increase the capacity of installed optical fiber to address the ever-increasing demand for more bandwidth. Polymeric materials offer the potential to create low-cost highly complex optical interconnection circuitry on a planar substrate. They provide the possibility for a much higher degree of ruggedness and hermeticity. Polymeric waveguiding structures are very low loss, temperature resistant, humidity resistant and exhibit low dispersion and low birefringence.
