In this paper, a three-dimensional polymer waveguide FIFO device, which could work as a connection element under the practical usage of MCFs is proposed by fabricating it with the Mosquito method. By re-designing the core arrangement and bending structures, as well as the needle-scan program, the cores could be dispensed on a designed path more accurately to achieve low insertion loss. The fabricated FIFO waveguide with a length as short as 10 mm exhibited the lowest insertion loss of 1.09 dB at 1310 nm. Because of the high core position accuracy, four cores in the FIFO waveguide exhibited high coupling efficiency at the connection with a 1-D arrayed fiber ribbon. This three-dimensional FIFO waveguide with low loss and compact size is expected to be integrated in a connector in etchataulp plicaations. This work was partially supported by JSPS KAKENHI under Grant JP18H05238.
