Abstract : Polymeric materials are very promising for a substantial cost reduction in the fabrication of guided wave devices, since mass fabrication technologies like molding, injection molding or casting may be applied. One of the greatest advantages of these technologies lies in the fact that the optical waveguide structures may be manufactured simultaneously together with fibre alignment grooves in one fabrication process.
