Paper Abstract

Nano-hybridization techniques based on the pyrolytic reactions of organo-soluble metallic precursors dissolved in poly(amic acid)s followed by spontaneous precipitation of metal/inorganic nano-particles in solid polyimide (PI) films is facile and effective for functionalization of PI optical and electronic materials. The organic/inorganinc PI nanohybrid materials, which were recently developed by the authors, having a variety of functionalities such as a) high refractive indices, b) low refractive indices, c) controlled thermo-optical property and its anisotropy, d) high polarizing property, and e) high thermal conductivity are reviewed with future prospects on their advanced opto-electronic applications.
