Details

Tittle:
Established Slovak university has developed a technology for preparation of optical fibres from polydimethylsiloxane and is looking for partners to commercialize this technology
Summary:
An established technical university from Slovakia is offering a technology for preparation of optical fibres from polydimethylsiloxane, with applications in telecommunications, electronics industry and sensor techniques. The process offers a high level of adjustment to requested parameters of fibers and is easily adapted to existing production processes. The university is looking for partners through licensing agreement, manufacturing agreement or technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
The technology is based on pulling fibers from partially cured polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). PDMS is placed between two fibers, which are subsequently pulled apart at specifically defined speed, so that the optical fiber waveguide with required parameters is formed. PDMS is elastic, hydrophobic, optically transparent, electrically conductive and biocompatible material. These properties predetermine it for the use in the production processes of microelectromechanical systems, microfluidic components, optofluid waveguides and in other types of micromanufacturing for electrical, optical, biological, biomedical and other applications. The main purpose of using PDMS for the preparation of optical waveguides is to create the desired optical waveguide with suitable length and diameter.
Advantages and Innovations:
· introduced technology enables the production of optical fibers with ideally smooth surface and circular cross-section
· possible diameter of the produced optical fibers ranges from hundreds of nanometres to few millimetres, and lengths up to tenths of centimetres, depending on the speed of pulling of the fibers
· PDMS has better elastic properties in comparison to optical glasses, fused silica, and majority of polymers, which are currently used for the fabrication of optical fibers
· optical fibers from PDMS can be produced directly among other types of fibers (e.g. silica fibers)
· by additionally connecting prepared PDMS optical fibers, it is possible to produce other optical elements, such as fiber optic splitter, fiber optic attenuator, fiber optic sensor and others
· preparation of PDMS fibers by pulling is very simple and does not require demanding technological equipment, which makes it potentially less expensive.
