This invention describes a range of low-cost polymer compositions and methods of making for high index, high Abbie number consumer optics.
The consumer eyewear global market is estimated at greater than $100 billion. Current optical polymer technology revolves around well-established thermoplastic or thermoset polymers, including polycarbonates and others. State-of-the-art known optical polymers are limited by a trade-off between the desire to have high refractive indices, high Abbe (transparency) numbers, and low material cost. There remains a technological need for new polymer chemistry to achieve desired optical properties at a low cost.
