Paper Abstract

Published work on organic materials for photonic device applications has tended to emphasize enhancements in nonlinear optical properties. Yet the linear properties of these materials are just as critical for determination of whether working devices are feasible. Simple calculations are presented to demonstrate the interplay between index of refraction, optical loss, and nonlinearity in device design. The implications of the result are discussed.
