Title: Optical formation of stable waveguiding structures from a photopolymerisable composition with a nonpolymerisable component

Abstract

We report formation of stable dielectric waveguiding structures from a photopolymerisable composition containing a nonpolymerisable component by optical radiation. A computer simulation has shown that the use of nonpolymerisable additives not only retains the self-trapping modes of incident radiation but also provides matching conditions for the synthesised waveguiding structure with standard optical fibres at telecommunication wavelengths. The efficiency of these nonlinear wave processes for connecting single-mode fibres SMF-28 is experimentally confirmed.
