Paper Abstract

Current properties requirements indicate that for second-order guest host polymeric materials to be both useful in an engineering sense and cost effective they must possess much greater thermal stability. This increased thermal stability is required to maintain both molecular alignment and intrinsic second-order nonlinearity during device fabrication and interface with current state-of-the-art microelectronic systems. In this presentation a new molecular design and synthetic strategy is presented to produce second-order chromophores with much higher thermal stability. Preliminary results of electric field induced second harmonic generation (EFISH) experiments on these compounds are revealed and a discussion of the use of these new molecules as second-order materials is presented.
