Paper Abstract

The lamination process is a common method to generate polymer multilayer foils. However, the substrate materials used need to be miscible to give a stable connection. A typical set of incompatible polymers that is often used in optical applications is cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). In this paper, we report about the development of a “Reactive Lamination Process” that is capable of forming a stable optical polymer multilayer of PMMA and COC. This paper focuses on the development of a spray coating process and the further processing with photoreactive PMMA copolymer systems that act as an unspecific primer to obtain optical polymer multilayer devices.
