Paper Abstract

This work describes the development, characterization and optimization of materials for optical memory storage applications. The photorefractive polymers are designed to contain second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) chromophores and charge transporting (CT) molecules embedded in a polymer matrix. The necessary electrooptic response is achieved by subjecting samples to a strong dc electric fields in order to induce a non-centrosymmetric arrangement of the NLO chromophores. This paper presents work performed on the design of a new multifunctional NLO-CT polymer.
