Synthesis of photosensitive Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Polymers via Anhydrous sol-Gel Process for Integrated Optics

Luo, Xinshi; Zha, Congji; Luther-Davies, Barry


Photosensitive organic-inorganic hybrid polymers were synthesised for integrated optical and optoelectronic devices by a non-hydrous sol-gel process of hydrolysis/condensation of 3-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (MPS), diphenyldimethoxysilane (DPhDMS), and zirconium isopropoxide (TPZ) with boric acid under anhydrous conditions. The methacryl groups of MPS are UV-polymerizable, which are suitable for low cost fabrication of waveguides with a "UV write/develop" process. The incorporation of...[Show more]
