Paper Abstract

This paper presents a brief overview examining the recently reported research and development of polymer based modulators and photodetectors that have been advanced for aerospace and space applications, and discusses the reported radiation resistance of several device technologies. Preliminary results of focused investigations to develop polymer based photonic technologies capable of surviving in the naturally occuring near-earth space ionizing radiation environment environment as well as the expected performance of these technologies on elevated radiation environments are presented.
