Paper Abstract

Optical amplification performance is channel waveguides involves the absence of OH groups to have Erbium doping efficiency and a high refractive index variation between the guide and the surround material to have the maximum confining as possible. In this way, we propose a new hybrid material using a hydrophobic silica precursor to reduce the OH content mixed to a diacrylate monomer which reactivity allow a high refractive variation under UV light exposure.
