Paper Abstract

Early work at Hoechst Celanese1 demonstrated that methacrylate polymers with mesogenic side chains could be made with reasonably large electro-optic activity. The mesogenic side chains are polar so that a non-centrosymmetric structure can be obtained by heating a film near its Tg in a strong d.c. electric field and thus orienting the side chains. In Figure 1, the general structure of methacrylate based electro-optic polymers using polar nitro-stilbene chromophores is shown.
