Abstract

For further increase of data rate in multimode fiber (MMF) links widely deployed in datacenters, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transmission technology is expected to be introduced. In this paper, we propose a Y-branched polymer waveguide with graded-index core for optical coupler in the MMF WDM links. The low loss structure of the Y-branched polymer waveguide is designed applying BPM simulation, and designed waveguide structures are actually fabricated using an imprint method to confirm their applicability to a low-loss optical coupler in MMF WDM links.
