This project set a foundation for future related projects at the new photonics laboratory at WPI. Integrated photonics is a rapidly growing industry with applications in communications, sensing, medicine, defense, computing, and beyond. To illustrate the capabilities of the new laboratory, we developed a straight waveguide and a waveguide with an S-bend. The design was simulated using the finite element method and fabricated using two-photon polymerization-based direct laser writing. For characterization, we measured the insertion loss of the waveguides and inspected the quality of the prints. As a recommendation for future potential projects, we proposed applications that could build upon this project and made several process recommendations based upon the challenges we encountered.
