Abstract

Integrated Optical Fibre (IOF) is a new technology in integrated optics using flame hydrolysis deposition to permanently attach an optical fibre onto a silicon substrate. This approach combines the low losses of optical fibre with the mechanical integrity of an integrated planar platform [1]. By attaching the fibre with high quality optical glass we create devices that transform the packaging of fibres for sensing applications removing any use of glues, epoxies, adhesives and making it suitable for harsh environments such as aerospace. The binding medium itself can also be used for its optical properties [1]. Fig. 1 shows an SEM image of the attached fibre platform, both in cross-section (inset) and also showing a standard 125 µm diameter optical telecom fibre.
