Paper Abstract

A nonlinear optic polymer blend of disperse red 1 in poly methyl methacrylate, spin cast on an indium tin oxide coated borosilicate glass substrate and a conductive polymer blend of polyethylene dioxythiophene/poly styrene sulphonate (Baytron P) in poly vinyl alcohol, spin cast on an uncoated borosilicate glass substrate were irradiated by 63.3 MeV proton to a dose of 1 Mrad (Si) of proton particles. The pre and post irradiated optical transmission characteristics of these polymer films over a wavelength range of 400 - 2000 nm, as well as in-situ thermal heating generated by irradiation are presented.
