Description

Polymers are not typically used for long-distance fiber optic applications due to high attenuation rates compared to other fiber optic material, such as glass. The purpose of this study is to analyze the thermal and rheological effects of the nanoparticles within the polymer matrix, polymer nanocomposites. The polymer nanocomposites display a decrease in the complex viscosity as compared to precipitated PMMA. Correspondingly, the loss and storage modulus of the polymer nanocomposites shifts compared to the precipitated PMMA.
