Optical interconnection offers improved performance of VLSI circuits and systems. Planar optical waveguides allow interconnections to be printed directly onto optical circuit boards. The experimental assessment of waveguide options is discussed. Combinations of waveguide bends and intersections have been modelled, and experimental results are given.
