Abstract

Polymer waveguides with different lengths have been
fabricated between two singlemode fibers by using a new approach
of self-writing using single photon polymerization via a xenon lamp
instead of a monochromatic laser source. A photopolymerizable
liquid drop deposited between two aligned fibers forms a polymer
bridge between the cores of the two fibers when irradiated by light
from one of the fibers. Polymer waveguides bridges 40 to 600 μm
long have been fabricated between two optical fibers with single
mode transmission loss 0.5 to 1.26 dB over a broad wavelength
range.
