Paper Abstract

We report our initial results on certain aspects of the fabrication of opto-electronic devices based on nonlinear optical organic polymers. In particular, we report the fabrication of rib waveguides in the high-temperature structural polymer PBI, measurement of the third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility in a side-chain biphenyl liquid-crystal polymer, and the determination that the origin of the response is thermal. In addition, we describe the design of a narrowband electro-optic tunable notch filter and report the results of device modeling calculations to determine the expected performance.
