Abstract

The UV polymerization of perfluorinated acrylic polymer for optical waveguide was studied by FTIR spectroscopy. 15 μm of ZPU12-450 and 6 μm of ZPU12-456 required 8 and 3 minutes repectively to be fully UV cured with low intensity of 14 mW/cm-2 at room temperature in the presence of nitrogen flowing. These results showed that delay of curing reaction with increasing depth in the coating. Besides, UV induced polymerization is found faster than thermal curing reaction.
