Paper Abstract

Results are presented on ultra low refractive index materials that can be used as low optical loss cladding materials for high ΔN waveguides. The porous materials are made by templating and removing nano size organic particles from a matrix. Calculations are presented for the scattering from such materials both in the bulk phase and also at the core cladding interface. The optical losses in tight turning high ΔN single mode waveguides are also calculated.
