Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9858284A1] The invention relates to a method for producing an integrated optical waveguide component. In order to prepare waveguides, a polymer substrate with waveguide channels is produced and then filled with an adhesive. A strip-off lid is placed on the substrate at high temperature. The device is then cooled until the strip-off lid can be removed easily from the substrate, as its expansion coefficients are less than those of the substrate. An adhesive can thus be introduced between the lid and the substrate. The device is then heated again for the adhesive to harden. The substrate is thus pressed against the strip-off lid, and the adhesive is pressed into the wave guide channels.
