Paper Abstract

A new material platform is described that enables inclusion of nanocrystalline quantum dots into a polymer. This technology is compatible with semiconductor processing and may enable integration of active materials into current waveguide technologies. We describe the steps preformed to fabricate a waveguide chip that contains IR-emitting quantum dots. Optical tests demonstrate guiding and preservation of the quantum dots optical properties through the processing steps. Time resolved optical measurements indicate presence of gain in the InAs quantum dot impregnated polymer.
