Paper Abstract

The former part of this paper present two types of copolymer systems, paranitroaniline (p- NA)/polyvinylalcohl (PVA) and disperse red 1(DR1)/polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) were synthesized for frequency doubling (second harmonic generation; SHG) in corona-poled waveguides. Remarkable blue SHGs from waveguides were observed by Cerenkov-type phase matching. The latter part of the paper describes characterization of a novel organic nonlinear crystal : 2-Furyl-Methacrylic-Anhydride (FMA) which has superior transparency ((lambda) cutoff equals 380 nm), larger SHG coefficient (d33 equals 24 pm/v) and stable physical property.
