Paper Abstract

The applicability of glassy polymer systems to integrated optics is discussed, including their manufacturability, integrability with sources, detectors, and drive electronics, and their optical and dielectric properties. A model nonlinear optical glassy polymer system was fabricated and evaluated. Its nonlinear optical properties compare favorably with those of other materials. Future optimization of nonlinear optical properties, along with the integrability, and high optical and dielectric quality of glassy polymers make this material class a promising one for use in integrated optics.
