FIG. 1.

Fabrication process of polymer micro/nanowires and SEM image of a 3D crossed structure. (a) Schematic of the polymer wire fabrication by direct tip-drawing process from polymer solution. The green arrow shows the drawing direction. (b) SEM image of a crossed structure formed by two wires with diameters of (wire 1) and (wire 2).

FIG. 2.

(a) Schematic of optical loss measurement and (b) measured optical loss vs polymer wire diameter for visible light and near infrared wavelengths.

FIG. 3.

Optical microscope images of different arbitrary and vertical optical couplers. The insets schematically represent respective structures, and the white arrows indicate the transmission direction of the guided light. (a) Optical microscope image of a crossed interconnect structure assembled by wires 1 and 2 with diameters of 1.05 and , respectively. (b) Optical microscope image of a crossed interconnect structure assembled by wires 1 and 2 with diameters of 1.18 and , respectively. (c) Optical microscope image of a star topology network assembled by three wires with diameters of (wire 1), 917 nm (wire 2), and 970 nm (wire 3). (d) Optical microscope image of a tree topology network assembled by three wires with diameters of (wire 1), (wire 2), and (wire 3).
