Abstract

We present a continuation of two previous studies [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 20, 1838 (2003) and J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 21, 958 (2004) ] on the optical characteristics of perfluorocyclobutyl-based polymers. Previously, the spectral dependences of the refractive index and the extinction coefficient have been calculated, and investigations were made into the theoretical and measured attenuation spectra of these polymers. Here, we report on the erbium-doped perfluorocyclobutyl aryl ether polymer 1,1,1-tris(4-trifluorovinyloxy)phenyl ethane. The absorption and fluorescence spectra are provided, including the Judd–Ofelt parameterization. The Judd–Ofelt parameters are found to be Ω 2 = 16.05 × 10 20 cm 2 , Ω 4 = 3.67 × 10 20 cm 2 , and Ω 6 = 3.59 × 10 20 cm 2 . These results are compared with those for a similar study on erbium-doped poly(methyl methacrylate), and conclusions are drawn concerning the effect of host properties in the 1550 nm region.
