Abstract
In this Letter, a novel all-polymer arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) device with an operating wavelength around 850 nm is reported. The all-polymer AWG consists of polymer ridge waveguides fabricated on a thin poly(methyl methacrylate) foil via microscope projection photolithography. The developed device is suitable to be integrated into optical circuits, e.g., a planar polymer foil and, along with other optical integrated devices, to be used for different sensing applications. The functionality of the device is demonstrated by using a fiber Bragg grating sensor and performing strain measurements.
