The fabrication of high-performance polymeric optical devices is demonstrated using multiphoton absorption polymerization (MAP). Supported waveguides with micrometer-scale diameters sustain high-quality modes with low loss. The performance of microring resonators created with MAP is comparable to that of devices created using more conventional lithographic techniques, but opens the door to the creation of devices with unique architectures.
