High-temperature electro-optic polymers

J. W. Wu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The importance of electro-optic polymers in an application to a high-speed optical interconnection technology is discussed. A thermodynamically unstable nature of electric field poling is analyzed by introducing a rotational diffusion equation. The material requirements for useful electro-optic polymers are presented with regard to thermal stability and optical transparency. Polyimide guest-host system is discussed as an alternative to side-chain or epoxy polymers. Four different curing processes of guest-host polyimide systems are presented.
