Paper Abstract

The technical process of spin coating polymer thin film used in thermo-optical switches fabrication was thoroughly described. High performance polymer films were prepared, whose refractive index, thickness and loss were tested. The effects of each technical parameter, as spin coating rate, solution concentration, spin coating time etc., on the optical and mechanical properties of the polymer thin film wave-guide were analyzed. An experiential equation was also given by least square fit method. The prepared films had comparatively low loss, desired thickness, and were of perfect quality. Some other thin film qualities as absorption spectrum and surface profile were also given to show the characteristics of the films.
