<p>We propose a glass interposer containing femtosecond laser-scribed waveguides to interconnect silicon photonic chips. The glass interposer has an insertion loss of about 1.5 dB/cm, and simplifies alignment of silicon photonic chips. Our experiment shows that the insertion loss for the grating coupler/inscribed glass interface was only 0.5 dB higher than the estimated coupling loss of grating coupler to SMF. The 3 dB coupling degradation occurs after 5 µm of in-plane displacement between the laser-inscribed waveguide and the grating coupler.</p>
