Polymer optical chip containing a combination of 45°-angled cut waveguide, Y-splitter and S-bend structures was designed and fabricated for simple and reliable evaluation of multi-mode waveguides. Effect of mode scramblers was investigated as an appropriate input condition for standardization of measurement of optical characteristics of multi-mode waveguides.
