Paper Abstract

Two different methods are described for measurement of the Pockels effect in a poled polymer film between planeparallel, semitransparent metal electrodes. Both are transmission experiments which can be performed at the same sample spot, using a common experimental set up. After a general description of the Pockels effect in electric field aligned sidechain polymers, the two measuring methods are described. Results of both types of measurements, obtained in a poled side-chain polymer with 4dimethylamino4'nitrostilbene (DANS) in the side group, are discussed.
