Paper Abstract

The optical and electro-optic properties and the temperature stability of those properties has been measured for DR-19 doped polymer films with a range of cross-linking agents. The films show good transmission in the optical communication range due to the lack of OH and NH bonds in the material. The refractive index and field dependent indices are comparable with those previously reported. However, the temperature stability of the films is high. It is this temperature stability that makes the material attractive for electro-optic switching applications.
