Beschreibung

In order to meet the increasing demand for data transmission over short distances of up to 100 m, the Optical Assembly and Connection Technology for Component-Integrated Bus Systems (OPTAVER) research group, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), developed a process for the additive manufacturing of three-dimensional optical waveguides. The research group focuses on design and modeling, simulation, and manufacturing polymer optical waveguides to produce 3D-Opto-Mechatronic-Integrated Devices (3D-Opto-MID). Inside 3D-Opto-MID, an optical coupler is presented based on an asymmetrical coupling principle. This paper reviews the entire process chain and the corresponding research results of the OPTAVER process.
