Development of low-loss polymer optical fibers and waveguides with integrated gain and ultrafast optical switching functionalities.
The work to be carried out by IT researchers (under the contract signed by Instituto Superior Tecnico) involves the synthesis of novel conjugated luminescent polymers to be dispersed in Plastic Optical Fibers (POFs) matrices (e.g. PMMA). The development of low loss POFs matrices is also part of IT contribution
