Abstract

We experimentally investigate the optical properties of single-mode polymer optical waveguides fabricated using two fabrication methods: The direct curing method and the Mosquito method. We demonstrate the characteristic differences between step-index square core single-mode waveguides and graded-index circular core single-mode waveguides composed of the same polymer materials.
