Paper Abstract

Fluorinated polyimides (F-PI) have been specifically developed for optical waveguides; it features high optical transparency from visible to near-IR and god heat resistance. Buried optical waveguides fabricated from F-PI operate in a single mode. They also exhibit a low loss of less than 0.3 dB/cm at the wavelength of 1.3 micrometers , and are heat and moisture resistant: the increase in optical los is less than 5 percent after heating at 300 degrees C for 1h or after exposure to 85 percent relative humidity at 85 degrees C for 24h.
