Abstract

Research for new production chains in the field of waveguide fabrication is a challenging task. Realizing a cost efficient manufacturing process allows integrating optical data communication in arbitrary structures, for example, the wing of an airplane or the body of a car. The production chain described in this paper contains the design, simulation, and fabrication process of printed polymer optical waveguides (POWs).
