Paper Abstract

Optical second-order nonlinear thin film was developed by doping dye organic molecules in a UV curing epoxy host polymer system and followed by an electric field poling step. The nonlinear optical polymeric thin film fabrication will be described. Results from a systematic evaluation of the film physical and optical properties using AFM, ellipsometer and Maker Fringe will be presented. The film absorption spectrum shows a promising advantage for frequency doubling in the blue color window. Optical nonlinear constants extraction from the Maker Fringe raw data will also be discussed.
