Summary: We propose a compact multi-channel 90 optical deflection device for short-distance optical interconnection. The device consists of stacked bent multimode optical waveguides having reflecting mirrors with bending angles of 90. The structure of the bent multimode optical waveguide with a bending angle of 90 was designed by ray-tracing simulations. The simulated insertion loss for each channel of the device was 0.5 dB. We also propose a simple fabrication process using a pair of multi-channel linear optical waveguides with symmetrical 45 mirrors. An 8-channel 90 optical deflection device was fabricated using polymer materials and basic operation was confirmed. Our device has good potential for use as a high-density optical interconnection device.
