Paper Abstract

Optical materials for waveguiding applications must possess the desired optical and electromagnetic properties for optimal device performance. Purified deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), derived from salmon sperm, has been investigated for use as an optical waveguide material. In this paper we present the materials processing and optical and electromagnetic characterization of this purified DNA to render a high quality, low loss optical waveguide material.
