Title: Optical waveguide device and method for fabricating the same

Abstract: Disclosed is an optical waveguide device having a structure capable of allowing the optical waveguide device to be easily connected with an optical fiber array connector while allowing an easy separation thereof from the optical fiber array connector. The optical waveguide device includes an upper substrate and a lower substrate each being provided at a main surface thereof with grooves each extending throughout the substrate in a direction corresponding to a coupling direction of the optical waveguide device to the optical fiber array connector, the upper and lower substrates being bonded to each other in such a fashion that the grooves of the upper substrate face those of the lower substrate, respectively, an optical waveguide portion formed at the main surface of one of the upper and lower substrates within a region defined between the grooves, tubes mounted between the facing grooves of the upper and lower substrates, respectively, each of the tubes having an insertion hole adapted to receive an alignment pin therein, and an adhesive adapted to bond the upper and lower substrates to each other and to bond the tubes to the upper and lower substrates.
