Abstract

Light-induced self-written (LISW) optical waveguides were fabricated for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, using a photopolymerizable resin system formed by 1550 nm pulse laser light. A two-photon absorption (TPA) chromophore with a TPA cross section of several hundred Goeppert-Mayer (GM) at 1550 nm was used. Furthermore, the optical interconnection between a single-mode fiber and a fiber Bragg grating was demonstrated by the present technique, using one-way irradiation of 1550 nm laser light through the single-mode fiber. The LISW waveguide formation using 1550 nm laser light offers a new and promising alternative route for optical interconnection in silicon photonics technology.
