Abstract
Polymeric optical waveguide devices connectable to plastic optical fibers (POFs) fabricated by thermal replication using thermo-plastic and thermo-curable resins are presented. Optical waveguides with large core sizes of 1000 μm were fabricated, and low propagation loss of ~0.2 dB/cm for thermo-plastic resin waveguide at 650 nm was achieved. Waveguide with high thermal resistance was realized by simultaneous curing and replication using thermo-curable multifunctional methacrylate monomers.
