Paper Abstract

The proliferation of optical systems has manifested the need for materials that possess a unique combination of physical, chemical, and optical properties as well as being easily fabricated into low loss waveguide structures. This paper focuses on the optical properties and waveguide performance of perfluorocyclobutyl-based (PFCB) polymers and copolymers. Topics include their experimental and theoretical optical performance, new PFCB derivatives and hybrids, and novel highly light emissive nanocomposites using inorganic lanthanide nanoparticles.
