Paper Abstract

We describe nanoengineered polymeric materials, their properties, and their use to produce state-of-the-art integrated optical components with optimal optical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties. These components met all performance and reliability requirements in the telecommunication industry, including Telcordia GR-1209/GR-1221 qualification, as well as accelerated aging tests that significantly exceed Telcordia requirements, such as aging at extreme temperature (5000 hours at 175°C) and optical power (6000 hours at 1.5 W of 1550 nm light). The types of components we describe include variable optical attenuator arrays, intelligent optical cross-connects, and fully reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers.
