Commercial Development of Advanced UV Curable Index Matching Materials
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
In this Phase II SBIR program, Tetramer Technologies will develop new, commercially attractive, patentable, UV curable refractive index (RI) matching materials which have a significant shelf life in the uncured state. The value proposition to the customer working with fiber optic cabling will be increased reliability in refractive index matching adhesives(IMA) for fiber optic coupling and increased performance through a decreased attenuation at a fiber splice. Currently, the long term stability of uncured IMM is unacceptable when the temperature and humidity are not controlled, which is the case in most field operations.
