Highly-halogenated low optical loss polyester

Polymere fortement halogene a faible perte optique


A polyester having less than 50 hydrogen-carbon bonds per 1000 molecular weight units exhibits very low optical loss in the range of wavelengths commonly used for optical communication, and exhibits other physical properties suitable for use as a waveguide core material and/or a waveguide cladding material in optical fibers and/or planar optical devices.
L'invention concerne un polyester possédant moins de 50 liaisons hydrogène-carbone pour 1000 unités de poids moléculaire, qui présente une très faible perte optique dans une plage de longueurs d'onde normalement utilisée pour une communication optique, ainsi que d'autres propriétés physiques adéquates pour une utilisation comme matériau noyau de guide d'ondes et/ou matériau de revêtement de guide d'ondes dans des fibres optiques et/ou des dispositifs optiques planaires.
