The monograph deals with research topic related to polymer and silicon waveguides, and components for integrated optic applications. Effective index-based matrix method (EIMM) was extended to step-index silicon (Si) and polymer (SU-8) waveguides. SU-8 wire waveguides were fabricated by maskless continuous-wave direct laser writing technique at 375 nm writing wavelength; detailed characterizations were made using in-house laboratory facilities to validate the computed results of EIMM.
