Paper Abstract

For the design of polymeric electrooptic devices, the indices of refraction of each layer are needed. There are a number of experimental techniques that can be used to determine these values for available polymers. Methods for the estimation are also possible for many proposed systems. We will explain these approximate methods for single systems, dispersion to the currently useful wavelengths in the IR, and the estimation of indices of refraction for composite system of either two polymers or a polymer and a nonlinear optically active chromophore. By these methods the design of new optoelectronic devices can be accelerated.
