UV-Assisted Nanoimprint Moulding Used to Fabricate Polymer Slot Waveguide

UV-Assisted Nanoimprint Moulding Used to Fabricate Polymer Slot Waveguide

Slot waveguide is a specific light-guiding structure with a property to enhance the optical field in a nanometer scale void of low refractive index (RI) material embedded between higher RI material rails. Typically, slot waveguides have been fabricated from high refractive index inorganic dielectrics or semiconductors, such as silicon or silicon nitride, and they operate in the near infrared (NIR) wavelength region.
