Abstract
Conventional optical packaging technologies cannot provide low-loss coupling among various mode-mismatched optoelectronic devices in a cost-effective manner. Our approach based on polymeric waveguide technology provides a unique solution that can alleviate the existing coupling losses among various optoelectronics components, including optical fibers, laser diodes, and photodetectors. In this work, the 3D tapered waveguide coupler was simulated to match MT connectors. According to this MT stand-off design, we fabricated and tested waveguide couplers in molded MT-RJ fiber connect ferrules and integrated optical cross-connects with fiber MT-like connectors. Three fabrication technologies for low-loss polymeric waveguides are also discussed here.
