논문초록 Optical and imaging technologies with infrared (IR) light are known to be an emerging frontier covering a wide range of defense, civilian and transportation applications. Currently, there are only a limited number of materials known that are capable of transmitting, guiding, or reflecting IR light. In this presentation, we will discuss our recent progress with a new class of IR optical polymers, termed as the chalcogenide hybrid inorganic/organic polymers (CHIPs). This new class of solution- and melt-processible materials demonstrate the highest refractive indices (n over 2.0) of any synthetic polymers in the NIR, mid-IR, and LWIR while, at the same time, retaining excellent transparency. We will discuss our recent efforts to prepare and process these materials into optical components for a variety of IR devices for thermal imaging and IR reflective coatings.
