Abstract

Integrated optical devices are demonstrated in poly(methylmethacrylate/2-methacryloylethylmethacrylate) copolymers by direct UV writing. This new technique uses a UV-induced refractive index change without etching. Y-splitter junction losses of 0.4dB and splitting ratios of 50:50 ±1% were obtained.
