Abstract

There is growing interest in the use of planar waveguide devices in telecommunications. Polymeric planar waveguide devices are of special interest in thermo-optic devices because of their high values for dn/dT. This paper details the possible choices in different photolithographic systems that could be used in making such devices. This paper explains the benefits of using fluorinated acrylates in achieving low-loss waveguides with low birefringence. It also explains the unique benefits of fluorinated acrylates in making Bragg gratings.
