Abstract : Organically modified ceramics (ORMOCERs) have been prepared with respect to optical applications. The investigations show that materials can be synthesized with interesting properties for a variety of potential applications. They can be used as hard coatings for the protection of optical polymers, e.g. CR 39 or fluorescent dye containing PMMA. The incorporation of dyes leads to active optical matrices, e.g. fluorescent coatings and the introduction of components with high refractive increments to refractive index numbers nD < or = 1.68. For microoptic applications, materials suitable for photolithographic patterning or direct laser writing have been developed.
