ORMOCER's with high optical performance and chemical stability are synthesized via the sol-gel process. Methacrylate group substituated silanes are copolymerized with methacrylic acid which acts as a chemical link between Zr as second inorganic network former. Chemical stable complex formation is proved by IR analysis and 13c NMR investigations. This material is laser patternable by the addition of a suitable photoinitiator and is characterized by high dielectric strength and low optical loss for applications in optics and non-linear optics.
