Abstract

Nanoporous Solid-Liquid core waveguides were prepared by UV induced surface modification of hydrophobic nanoporous polymers. With this method, the index contrast (deltan = 0.20) is a result of selective water infiltration. The waveguide core is defined by UV light, rendering the exposed part of a nanoporous polymer block hydrophilic. A propagation loss of 0.62 dB/mm and a bend loss of 0.81 dB/90 degrees for bend radius as low as 1.75 mm was obtained in these multimode waveguides.
