Abstract
We have performed a study of the coupling of single mode optical fibers to integrated optical polymer waveguides. Present methods of fiber-waveguide---fiber coupling are discussed. The technique of fiber end polishing and its importance is discussed. The optimum geometry of the groove is predicted. Different possible losses and their remedies are described. The precise geometry of the V-groove removes all but two degrees of freedom in aligning the fiber to the waveguide. A further improvement in the etching technique can reduce this further down to only one linear degree of freedom. I .
