Abstract

A technique has been developed for coupling multimode fiber to ridge waveguides on a substrate. It consists of D-fiber and polymer waveguides. Fabrication techniques for each are presented. Average insertion losses as low as 2.5 dB for coupling multimode optical fiber to 6.0 cm long waveguides were measured. This new coupling technique has great potential for passive alignment of optical fiber to ridge waveguides.
