Abstract

Polymeric slot waveguide structure, which pushes the mode field toward the surrounding media, was designed and characterized. The slot waveguide was fabricated by using nanoimprint lithography, and the operation of the slot was demonstrated at 633 nm wavelength with an integrated Young interferometer. The experimental result shows that the nanolithography method provides possibilities to fabricate disposable slot waveguide sensors.
