Paper Abstract

Some of the key work on the growth of second- and third-order nonlinear optical (NLO) organic thin film by vapor deposition is reviewed. The experimental methods used to grow thin films of p-chlorophenylurea, diacetylenes, and phthalocyanines and the characteristics of the resulting films are also reported. Moreover, shortfalls in the growth of films from the vapor and two suggestions that may advance this field of study are presented.
