Abstract

Europium ( Eu 3 + ) -doped epoxy-based resin Norland optical adhesive (NOA) polymers have been prepared and characterized optically. Quartz capillary tube encapsulated Eu 3 + -doped NOA polymeric waveguides have been fabricated via a simple withdrawal molding technique. Optical amplification at 612 nm wavelength has been demonstrated in these waveguide devices, and the signal enhancements for different lengths of the devices have been measured. A maximum signal enhancement of 30   dB has been obtained for a 16 mm long device.
