An innovative self-aligning technique for the pigtailing of optical fibers to buried channel planar waveguides is presented, based on selective etching. This technique utilizes a plug-and-socket mechanism that is intrinsically self-aligning and mechanically stable. The processes involved have been specifically designed to facilitate the bulk manufacture of pigtailed single or multiple fibers and waveguides. An optimized alignment geometry for the physical connection of fibers to waveguides is presented.
