14 January 1993 Optical properties of waveguiding structures in polymers
Author Affiliations +
Optical waveguides have been produced in poly-(methyl-meth-acrylate) (PMMA) by ionizing radiation of the surface of polymer solid blocks. Planar and strip structures have been obtained. Dispersion curves of refractive indices have been measured between 458 nm and 1523 nm. Mechanical changes of the surface geometry have been studied by surface profilometry. Chemical reactions within the irradiated volumes have been investigated by ATR-FT-IR spectroscopy. Light guiding properties of the waveguides are reported.
