Abstract

Tapered polymer optical waveguides with graded-index (GI) circular core are designed and fabricated using the Mosquito method. We show an ideal index profile design for the tapered polymer waveguide allowing a low-loss optical coupling between a VCSEL source and a multimode fiber/waveguide with a large misalignment tolerance.
