The high light transmittance of optical composites at the visible wavelength range brings about the possibility of communication between the inside and outside of the devices, while the high CTE of the epoxy resin needs to be lowered to match with that of the packed devices such that a large thermal strain between the contained device and the epoxy package under operating condition can be avoided.
