Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on “Polymeric Materials for Optoelectronic Devices Applications” is devoted to the dissemination of high-quality original research articles or comprehensive reviews on cutting-edge developments in this interdisciplinary field. Over the past few years, polymer science and technology have been driven by scientific breakthroughs to optoelectronic applications. A large number of polymeric materials have been developed for optoelectronic applications, and new advances are being made for the improvement of the fabricated devices. The increasing interest in polymeric materials may be due to their synthesis, which is often relatively low cost and easy, as well as to the possibility of obtaining a wide range of properties and functionalities for optoelectronic applications. This excitement is fostered through the convergence of physical, digital, and materials sciences, which will bring about profound changes to the way we design and produce optoelectronic devices, especially concerning interfaces between polymeric and optoelectronic devices.

Thus, an in-depth understanding of physical, chemical, and/or engineering directions is highly relevant to the performance and development of any polymer-based optoelectronic product. Both original contributions and comprehensive reviews are welcome.

Abstract
Polymer waveguide phase modulators exhibit stable low-power phase modulation owing to their exceptional thermal confinement and high thermo-optic effect, and thus, have the merit of thermal isolation between channels, which is crucial for an optical phased array (OPA) beam scanner device.

Polymer waveguide phase modulators exhibit stable low-power phase modulation owing to their exceptional thermal confinement and high thermo-optic effect, and thus, have the merit of thermal isolation between channels, which is crucial for an optical phased array (OPA) beam scanner device. In this work, a waveguide phase modulator was designed and fabricated based on a high-refractive-index fluorinated polyimide. The propagation loss of the polyimide waveguide and the temporal response of the phase modulator were characterized. Moreover, the transfer function of the phase modulator including multiple poles and zeros was obtained from the measured frequency response. The polyimide waveguide modulator device demonstrated a fast response time of 117 μs for 1 kHz input signal, however, for 1 mHz step-function input, it exhibited an additional 5% phase change in 5 s.
