Abstract
Neodymium (Nd) doped polymer based optical amplifiers have been studied. NdCl3.6H2O and Nd(III) hexafluoracetylacetonate were used as dopants. Photoluminescence at 0.89 micrometers , 1.06 micrometers and 1.33 micrometers from Nd ions in polyimide was detected. Phase separation with possible formation of liquid crystal polymer was observed in NdCl3.6H2O doped polyimide. Thin film waveguides and multimode channel waveguides were fabricated using a novel planarizing technique to reduce scattering losses. Optical gain of about 5.4 dB at 1.06 micrometers was demonstrated in a 5 cm long NdCl3.6H2O doped polyimide channel waveguide.
