Paper Abstract

Fluoropolymers are viable material options for short haul fiber and planar waveguide photonic applications. This work provides the refractive index, extinction coefficient, Sellmeier coefficients, and infrared absorption for two perfluorocyclobutyl-based (PFCB) polymers. These PFCB fluoropolymers have marked themselves as alternatives to the more well known fluoropolymers based on their solution processability and broad tailorability of optical, thermal, and mechanical properties.
