Optical interconnect is a mode of communication through optical cables. It is used to transform the signals from electrical to optical with less frequency dependent loss and high bandwidth. Optical interconnect can be categories into two main types namely optical fiber, and the optical waveguide. The optical waveguide is an element that interconnects various devices of optical integrated circuits. However, the optical wave travels in the waveguide in different optical modes that help in solving the data traffic congestion with low power consumption. The optical waveguide can also aid in handling the significant amount of data generation from data center along with cloud computing with high bandwidth. The optical waveguide has unique features such as biocompatible, enables distributed sensing, high bandwidth, resistant to electromagnetic noise such as motors, radios, and operates at high speed.
