Author Affiliations +
A long-distance Optical Printed Circuit Boards (OPCB) was fabricated to realize high-speed optical interconnects. The OPCB was made up of polymer optical waveguides fabricated by using ultraviolet (UV) photolithography technique. The length of OPCB is 30cm. The minimal transmission loss of the optical waveguide is approximate 5.36dB at 850 nm wavelength. Two MT-RJ optical connecters were assembled on the OPCB to realize optical coupling between optical fibers and waveguides. The dependence of coupling loss on misalignment was obtained with different offset value theoretically and experimentally. The minimal total insertion loss is only 8.06dB. With 10 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) optical transceivers as the input/output module, we tested the performance of the OPCB. The date rate of 10Gbps can be transmitted successfully.
