Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Organic/Inorganic hybrids for Integrated Optics - 2

Acronym: Oreo2
Main Objective: - To investigate sol-gel derived amine functionalised OIH, such as di-ureasils, modified by ZPO and MA as material
substrate for production of passive IO devices
- To investigate the influence of the processing of the materials as thin films and monoliths on the PL features of the
undoped host
- To investigate the influence of ZPO concentration and different ratios ZPO:MA on the local structure and PL
features
- To perform waveguide geometric optimization in order to achieve the required functionalities of the desired
devices
- Fabrication of channel waveguides with the proposed OIH processed as monoliths an thin films
- To implement enabling solutions for access optical networks, such as low cost optical power splitters and optical
filters.
- To investigate the role of the OHI processing mode (monoliths and films) in the structural, photoluminescence and
waveguide features.
