Abstract

In polymer optical waveguides fabricated using the Mosquito method, the diffusion occurs between the core and cladding monomers during the interim time that is from the moment that the liquid core monomer is dispensed to when the UV curing begins, and a graded-index type refractive index profile is formed in the core. In this paper, the diffusion coefficient of monomer is measured. Then, a diffusion simulation model is created, which can calculate the concentration distribution of monomer using the diffusion coefficient that depends on the monomer concentration. Finally, the refractive index profiles formed in the cores are simulated and the output near-field patterns are theoretically estimated to evaluate the core diameter and numerical aperture dependences on the interim time.
