Paper Abstract

Polydiacetylene crystals with different kinds of side chains are formed and show two characteristic nonlinear-optical responses: the photo-induced structure change and the very large third-order optical susceptibility. The former property may be used as optical memory and the latter as the optical information processor. These two aspects of polydiacetylene are discussed in this paper.
