Tests on Kodak Ortho Resist (KOR) have been made for application to integrated optics. This material is interesting with respect to other photoresists for its high sensitivity over a wide wavelength range. Optical waveguides and gratings have been realized with KOR. In particular gratings with high frequency have been used to test the possibility of air-film coupling via their evanescent diffracted waves.
