In this work simple fabrication technique of polymeric optical waveguide and its elements in polymer films based on mold technology is demonstrated. The large core optical waveguide, relief gratings and fiber guide were produced in polymer films using hot-emboss technique. Moreover, simultaneous formation of channel waveguide with other elements based on the present technology is also reported.
