Paper Abstract

Conjugated polymers do not only attract great attention due to their suitability in organic transistors, light emitting diodes and solar cells, moreover, they posses unexpected record-high second-order nonlinear optical responses. Nonlinear optical polymers have been reported as attractive materials for space applications such as electro-optic modulation and optical power limiting. In this work, we report on a new approach for increased second-order nonlinear properties demonstrated in a series of poly(thiophene) derivatives and poly(phenanthrene)s.
