Paper Abstract

The introduction of advanced optical materials into communication technology facilitates increased data trans-mission speed, increased bandwidth, intrinsic low crosstalk and high security in multiplexed systems, and simplified implementation of parallel processing. Prototype and first-generation optical communication, information storage and information processing systems have been developed from hybrid electro-optical or all-optical effects in inorganic crystals and semiconductors. Organic and polymer nonlinear optical materials may have processing or performance ad-vantages in the next generation of optical information systems design, but research is needed to define the materials of interest and development will be necessary to incorporate these new materials into practical active elements. This paper is an overview of 3M's program for development of nonlinear optical materials.
