Paper Abstract

The current potential of organic-inorganic hybrid materials, based on a sol-gel derived siloxane matrix, for photonic applications is reviewed. Materials development for bulk and waveguide applications is considered. The hybrid materials are classified and approaches to synthesis and shaping are discussed. Structure is reviewed especially the implications for optical performance and material robustness. Linear optical loss mechanisms are discussed and potential photonic applications are briefly reviewed.
