Abstract

QDs-doped polymer microfibers are fabricated through direct drawing method. By adding the polymethylmethacrylate into polystyrene, the surface quality and flexibility of microfiber are improved. Under direct excitation by the focused laser, the polymer microfibers doped with different quantum dots emit different colors and act as an optical waveguide. The waveguide properties of the microfiber are studied in detail. It is found that refractive index of the substrate and diameter of microfiber are the most important factors that affect the optical loss of this waveguide. The microfiber does not produce significant polarization after being deposited on the substrate. Moreover, exciting the QDs-doped polymer microfiber through a blue LED is demonstrated. This structure may find widespread applications in integrated photonic devices.
