Paper Abstract

The potential applicability of organic materials to integrated optics is substantial owing to both microscopic and bulk properties of organic and polymeric materials. Fabrication flexibility and the tailoring of optical properties via material engineering are but two of the advantages of using organic materials. Both passive (waveguiding/interconnection) and active structures/devices can be built. We will review the structures fabricated from organic materials that can be applied to integrated optics; and the properties of these structures will be discussed. Recent efforts in the application of organics to integrated optics will be presented, including fabrication of polymer waveguides and measurement of waveguide and loss properties.
