Abstract: This article reports about nanocomposites, which refractive index is tuned by adding TiO2 nanoparticles. We compare in situ/ex situ preparation of nanocomposites. Preparation procedure is described, properties of nanocomposites are compared, and especially we examine the applicability of two-photon polymerization (2PP) of synthesized nanocomposites. All prepared samples exhibit suitable optical transparency at specific laser wavelengths. Three-dimensional structures were generated by means of two-photon polymerization effect induced by a femtosecond laser.
Keywords: high refractive index; polymer/TiO2 nanocomposites; two-photon polymerization (2PP); 3-dimensional (3D) structures high refractive index; polymer/TiO2 nanocomposites; two-photon polymerization (2PP); 3-dimensional (3D) structures
