Paper Abstract

Polymer composite materials have considerable attention in the modern technology and are an object of numerous fundamental and scientific investigations. Polymer composite materials have advances in physical and optical properties over single materials. It is well known that the refractive index of the optical materials play an major role for all optical functional properties. The change of refractive index due to optical intensity is important for making photo-devices such as optical switching, optical memory, and logic circuits. In the present work, we have investigated the polythiophene family derivatives i.e. poly(3-octylthiophene) (P3OT) and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) composites materials.
