Abstract

In this paper, we focus on the coupling loss of polymer waveguide based optical links, which exhibits a serious impact on the power budget in such a short-reach link. In particular, the optimum core size of polymer waveguides for the low coupling loss with VCSELs and PDs with small effective area is investigated both theoretically and experimentally.
