Paper Abstract

For opto-electronic applications, materials are needed exhibiting considerable optically nonlinear effects and which are easy to process or shape into desired structures. In recent years, organic molecules have been synthesized, showing large nonlinear polarization properties. These molecules are the building blocks of organic optically nonlinear materials. Such materials can in principle be used to perform functions for optical data transmission and optical data processing. The potential properties and applications of optically nonlinear polymers in these fields are discussed.
