Abstract

Polydimethylsiloxane and the oxides of silicon, titanium and germanium have been incorporated using sol-gel chemistry to yield new polyceram planar waveguides. The waveguides exhibit superior optical properties such as losses as low as <0.15 dB/cm. The volume homogeneity and optical properties of the films are studied as functions of composition. Sources of attenuation are investigated and related to the volume network and surface characteristics.
