Paper Abstract

One of key applications desired for second-order non-linear optical materials is that of an electro-optic phase shifter. Organic materials offer the promise of having large electro-optic coefficients for this application. A number of organic materials were examined as either crystalline or ordered polymeric thin films. The results of absorption, second-harmonic generation, and electro-optic measurements on these materials will be presented. The results on waveguide fabrication and coupling are also discussed.
