RI Contrast Polymers

Refractive Index Contrast Polymers:  Photoresists for Polymer Waveguides, Interconnects & Photonic Devices

We have developed a new class of optical polymers, termed, Refractive Index Contrast  (RIC) Polymers, which are a class of photoresists that can be used as a “dry-write” film for waveguide and optical interconnect fabrication.  These new optical polymers are designed to enable rapid device component integration of photonic devices for next generation semiconductor chip fabrication.
