Abstract

In this paper, the fundamental optical properties of photonics polymers are reviewed on the basis of the relationship between lightwave and polymer materials. We have proposed and demonstrated photonics polymers with new optical functions for applications in microoptics fields, such as graded-index plastic optical fibers (GI POFs), highly scattered optical transmission (HSOT) polymers, zero-birefringence optical polymers, and graded-index plastic optical fiber amplifiers (GI POFAs). In the materials we proposed, the lightwave refracts, scatters or polarizes according to the size of heterogeneities of refractive index within the polymer matrix. With these photonics polymers, we propose the concept of "fiber to the display", which will lead us back to "face-to-face communication".
