Deep UV-induced modification of the refractive index of polymers is a useful technique for realizing integrated optical circuits for telecommunication and sensor applications. The combination with replication techniques such as hot embossing opens up a variety of possibilities such as a monolithic integration in optical or fluidic microsystems. In this article the fundamental understanding of the deep UV process is given including examples of fabricated waveguide based devices.
