20 April 2006 Novel polymer waveguides consisting of an alicyclic methacrylate copolymer
Author Affiliations +
We investigate the deep-UV-induced refractive index modification of alicyclic methacrylate copolymers for realizing integrated optical circuits for the development of cheap, disposable integrated optical sensors for chemical and biological monitoring. These novel copolymers obtain higher glass transition temperature (Tg), refractive index and lower water absorption than conventional poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA). At the same time, the adhesion of living mammalian cells on the UV exposed polymer surface was investigated for the application for biosensor.
