    Abstract: Provided is an optical waveguide photosensitive resin composition containing a resin component and a photopolymerization initiator, in which the resin component contains an aliphatic resin having a polymerizable substituent as a main component. Accordingly, when, for example, the core layer of an optical waveguide is formed by using the optical waveguide photosensitive resin composition, the optical waveguide has high transparency, and vibration absorption derived from a resin skeleton at a wavelength of 850 nm serving as the wavelength of light propagating through the optical waveguide can be avoided. As a result, a reduction in loss of the optical waveguide can be realized.

  • Patent number: 9624342
    Abstract: Medium and high molecular weight polyester polymers are prepared in syrup form from an ester oligomer. The oligomer is converted to the polymer by polycondensation at elevated pressure and elevated temperature in a nonreactive carrier capable of forming an azeotrope with water. The ester oligomerization or polycondensation reactions desirably are monitored using a non-viscometric technique. The process has a rapid cycle time. The syrup contains the polymer and nonreactive carrier, and may more conveniently be used to make initially non-solid products such as polyester coatings than is the case when employing pelletized solid polyester resins.
