Polymers with a high refractive index and low optical dispersion

Authors


Abstract

Organic Polyelectrolytes (I-VII) known as Ionenes, with unique combinations of high refractive index (ND) and high Abbe number (VD, see figure) now compete with inorganic glasses for application in optics. Variation of the counterions allows the tuning of their chemical and optical properties.
