Abstract

The applicability of layers of ion-implanted polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) for beam splitting of laser light at the telecommunications wavelength of 1.55 μm is examined. Bulk PMMA is studied, subjected to low-energy ( 50 keV ) silicon ion implantation at various ion fluences in the range from 10 14 to 10 17 cm 2 . The formed ultrathin near-surface ion-implanted layer of a thickness of about 100 nm , buried in a depth of 100 nm , can be used to split (or combine) laser beams at 1.55 μm with a low absorption loss.
