Abstract

The benefits of organic and polymeric materials used for various applications in optical communications are discussed. The ultraviolet cured systems of highly cross-linked low Tg optical polymers eliminates the need for costly dry etching processes and also lowers the stress in the waveguide. Low-loss polymers also reduces electrical power consumption for devices. It is concluded that the levels of loss achieved by both halogenated cross-linked and conventional perfluoropolymer systems makes it suitable for high levels of optical integration.
