A new advanced nano-particle material (NPM) has been developed by the SBIR ERS/Siloptix Co. This material has many attractive applications in micro- and opto-electronic packaging. Particularly, an effective practical technology for making NPM-based optical silica fiber coatings has been developed under grants from DARPA/Navy. The developed technology enables one to create ultra-thin, highly cost-effective, highly mechanically reliable, and highly environmentally durable coatings for silica light-guides. The obtained results have demonstrated the performance superiority of the developed technology over polymer-coated and metallized fibers, as well as a potential that the NPM has for various commercial and military applications in micro- and opto-electronics packaging and beyond.
